Kristen Martincic: Swim Club -  San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles  •   San Jose, California
April 20, 2019 - July 14, 2019

Kristen Martincic uses swimwear as a surrogate for the female body, creating paper bathing suits that are a cross between a bathing suit and an underdress, skin and clothing. Social conventions and context play a significant role in how these garments are viewed by others and ourselves. These delicate paper suits talk about the awkwardness of vulnerability and exposure while maintaining a sense of levity.
