Textiles, whether woven, embroidered or sewn, are among the industrial forms most suited to the logic of capital (through its codified abstraction that facilitates its mechanical reproduction). In their vernacular form, they can escape the market and the eye of power. They can exist in the foreground or the background, attract the eye or disappear, be camouflaged, folded, hidden, worn, hung. The works presented in this exhibition are both silent and encoded with multiple meanings. If we know how to look at them, they tell stratified stories, individual and collective, of struggles, workers, feminists, and resistances.
