Krowswork, Oakland, CA 2014
Site specific installations by Roderick Kiracofe, Karen and Malik Seneferu, Nicole Shaffer; video by Sanford Biggers
What do we learn from the back, that which is usually not seen? I am fascinated by the backs of quilts and quilt tops. I also love the WPA photographs of the interiors of sharecroppers homes. My installation uses the backs of quilt tops and quilts along with a collaborative video piece with Jason Hanasik. I wanted to allude to the types of homes in which these textiles may have originated.
