This is a piece I made back in February, and the message is even more meaningful to me now. The quote is from a couplet written in the 1970s by gay Greek poet Dinos Christianopoulos. More recently a similar version of it was used by Mexican activists in support of the Ayotzinapa 43, the 43 students who were ‘disappeared’ in Iguala, Mexico. I loved the history of this couplet, and it’s re-use in activist movements. I hope we are all seeds, and that we keep watering each other!
This piece includes an embroidery hoop. You can hang it in the hoop as is, or you can frame it. There is extra fabric on the sides that enable multiple methods for display. If you have further questions, please message me!
My work is all about re-working traditionally feminine crafts, vintage pieces, and queer imagery with a modern naughty, and politicized twist.
