The Lesvos Cover

Christina V. Schiørn

I am patching up the cover with love, care and kindness, the same love, care and kindness I would use if I patched something for my children. If the children are unlucky and make a hole in a favorite piece of clothing, patching it together can really save the day.

I not only repair the hole, but the «world» for one that is small. I create my own visual, but also a poetic expression, caught up in my cover, which can be understood and perceived by others.

 

Material: Found object in Lesvos and white cotton strings

Size:  235  x 380 cm

Maybe one day I have to take it back to Lesvos?
