“other women’s work”: The Construction
Goldsmiths design student Eve Nightingale presents “other women’s work”.
Thursday 2 June, 11am – 1pm
Constance Howard Gallery
Over three days, Eve will be resident at the Constance Howard Gallery to construct a ‘fur’ coat out of household dust, reimagining dust as material and appropriating needle-felting as the method with which to transform it. Much of the dust has been collected by domestic worker Tracy, from the houses she cleans. In Eve’s words, “It’s still women’s work. It is not every woman’s work.”
There will also be a selection of felt works from the Goldsmiths Textile Collection on display.
Eve’s finished piece will be on view at the BA Design Degree show Known Unknowns at The Truman Brewery, 18-20th of June: http://www.gold.ac.uk/degree-shows/design/
See the Goldsmiths calendar event for more information.
Talking Textiles is a once monthly lunch time get-together for anybody interested in textiles or curious to find out more. A small selection of textiles from the Goldsmiths Textile Collection is available for viewing and discussion at the Constance Howard Gallery. For those keen to be involved further, there is the opportunity to research a chosen textile and to share findings or questions at the following session. Attendees are invited to continue discussion and share their own textile projects over lunch next door to the gallery. Please bring your own lunch and any textile project you are working on. Tea and coffee are provided.
