WOMEN WHO EMBROIDER THEIR STORIES

SKICA

27.9.–6.10.2019

A project that will literally knit people together. A project that makes memorable the stories of women of various religions, social backgrounds, and ages along a common thread. Established in cooperation with the collective Oloop and the humanitarian association Up, it comprises individual embroidery works by migrants in Jesenice and asylum applicants from Ljubljana who together created a textile and memory wall. The symbols on it represent personal stories and are growing together through collaboration to a collective narrative – solidarity expressed in textiles as it has long been done by women.
