By Nava Lubelski, working with the idea of destruction and restoration, tearing and cutting stained areas of a painted canvas then carefully repairing them with embroidery. The web-like structures over the larger holes are beautiful and embellish the repair work in such a precious way, the contrasting colours on the final image really stand out for me too.
“I think when we talk about street harassment we’re talking about a type of power and privilege that’s being exerted over women in public spaces. And whenever we talk about any type of oppression or privilege, there’s always the other types of oppression or privilege that come in to play. That includes race, sexuality, class, gender, etc. How do queer women experience street harassment, how do trans women experience it? As the project is growing, this is all stuff that I’m trying to be more aware of and articulate in the work." -Tatyana Fazlalizadeh
