I am currently in a show at the Center For Contemporary Art and the Natural World The Exhibition: Fashion Footprints Sustainable Approaches is a groundbreaking concept devised by CCANW and graduates from the MA Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion. The work is on view through November, 2010. I was asked to donate a print for the show; see above image: “Sew Much To Smile About” is a video still taken from one of several video poems shown in the “Open-Book, Open-Source – AFRICA” video piece on exhibit. The Video Book is exploring various connections to the African maker. In this print a Malagasy woman is smiling while embroidering lace. Her smile represents handmade pleasure from Madagascar, and the cultural capital throughout Africa. For information on how to bid on this print, email info@ccanw.co.uk
