Created for Elise Cakebread's Show Gathering Dust at Linden New Art 2023.

Artist's Statement:

Colloquially, to be gathering dust means to remain unused, to be untouched for a long period of time, it suggests inertia most often within the domestic sphere. It could also suggest a foreboding, those ominous dust storms that have become increasingly common in desert regions as the climate emergency escalates. Dust itself holds connotations of human fragility, death, even disillusionment, disappointment. Ultimately, dust evokes the nothingness we inevitably return to.

Dust Particle engages in the act of making, re-making and reassembling elements, emphasising their rich histories, sentiment and potential for transformation.

The work is created almost wholly from domestic waste – post consumer garments, yarn, wire, fibres, ribbon, packaging materials, cushion stuffing, doilies, tablecloths, fragments of 21st century household detritus. Those materials have been de-constructed and re-interpreted using techniques grounded in my textile practice – coiling, spinning, felting, shredding, carding and embroidery.
