Title:
Emergence

Author:
Amy Davis

Description:
Amy aims to challenge yet take inspiration from traditional embroidery methodologies and processes. As Covid-19 continues to thrive, people continue to miss the spaces and experiences; a simple trip to the theatre is now feared to not ever be the same again. Davis has repurposed the functional aspect of a theatre experience (the chair which is sat on) to sculpturally portray the domineering and controlling qualities of Covid-19. The “emergence” growing from the chair suggests how the virus continues to dictate over and force communities out of the spaces that they may have previously taken for granted. Sustainability for me is all about challenging, being mindful of and repurposing materials which are usually overlooked by the rest of society. I believe if we continue to use materials up like we do, they will be harder to replenish and sustain for our future generations to come. This is one reason why I’ve also taken to social media to initiate conversation regarding make, do and mend and it’s importance to educate and challenge the so- called “normalised" throw-away mindset.
