Exchange of Threads: A Personal Repair Service

Gallery of Student Art, University of Manitoba - January, 2016

An interactive conceptual installation, using thread, colour, sewing as points of departure for gaining insights into the relationships among self, others and immediate surroundings. An act of sharing between strangers through conversation and repair. 

Visitors brought various damaged textile articles, chose the colour of thread they wished, and watched as they were mended.

Collaborative partners: Ashley Bielus, Hannah Grabowecky, Freya Perron.
