Under the shirt, there are family stories that are passed on and memories that are distorted, reinvented, or erased over time. It is a heritage which we do not choose, but which we endorse as it imposes itself, envelops us, and creates invisible and subtle links between generations.

I wanted to bring an idea of movement to the piece. I added pulled thread work and created a new weft on the shirt (found in my grandmother’s attic). The shredded fabric and the inner color that imposed itself on the character, created a sense of how the future dances with the past!
