Iviva Olenick, Melissa Zexter: Past and Present
May 18-Jun 24
Iviva Olenick recreates old family photos through embroidery, tracing her matriarchal lineage. By doing this, she can piece together lost familial practices, and memories. Melissa Zexter works by directly embroidering onto her photographs, combining a traditional practical skill, embroidery with a modern and mass reproducible process, photography. Both find inspiration through personal stories and accounts of their lives, and the traditional feminine practice of embroidery.
