Childrens Apron, Four colour lithographs on kozo paper, assorted papers and thread, 100 x 44 cm.
The aprons were first exhibited with Bedtime Stories, a series of crib-sized paper quilts, wearable art and an artist book that explores traditional storytelling as pedagogy, under the title Sewn Stories at Evergreen Cultural Centre, Coquitlam, BC (May 9 - July 5, 2008). Hung at eye level, the aprons reference the human form and its absence, while playing with the idea of wearing one‘s experience, as well as hiding behind it. . Bedtime Stories combined with the Travel aprons brought 3 generations of mothers and 4 generations of daughters into the room to speak about the societal pressures we face trying to be women, mothers, and more.
