Jasmine Nyende: To keep me warm. While I grieve.
December 18, 2021 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
I’m making a quilt. At Human Resources. To keep me warm. While I grieve. If you want. Bring me warm fabrics. Anytime between 6-10pm. While I sew. You can’t actually come inside but bring fabrics/ old clean clothes or other textiles and you can watch while I sew from inside while you are outside. It’s like a drive by funeral for the threads. Come for as long or as short as you like. Because grief is naturally voyeuristic and I’m an performance artist that luckily has the space to do something to feel apart of you during the pandemic. As a metaphor for how it feels to grief. But please bring any clean, soft, loving fabrics to sew into a grief map to feel comfort in. I will sleep in it on Christmas Eve and remember your care.
Quilting as a social practice and all that jazz.
To be clear, I am doing a durational performance art piece about how people are healing post-Covid with the love of our communities. This is an exploratory action into being together. So then making a quilt dependent completely by YOU (and my own fabrics from past donations) to make something to keep me warm. 12/18 at Human Resources, please leave the fabric outside the door for me to collect and stay outside unless invited in ❤️❤️
