redress [ree-dres]
verb

With Lia Rousset and Carla Duarte

The wool from unraveled sweaters becomes re-knit, activating a system of doing, undoing, and redoing. Stringing the gallery like a machine, the labor from harvesting second hand sweaters threads the room, while knitting translates the space into a sustained function.Visitors were invited to add to redress by coming into the space to knit, skill-share, learn, converse, or contemplate. As we all struggle to feel connected to the systems that make up our lives, the line of thread, moving through readymade materials and into our hands, activates us as participants and, interestingly, provides a place of comfort.
