Life Stories through Stitched Cloths with Anna Torma

In this talk, Anna Torma discussed three of her major bodies of work, including: Red Fragments, an installation that focuses on the story of an immigrant artist cutting her heritage embroidery collection into pieces and reassembling them as a quilt alongside an elderly woman trying to reclaim the embroidery techniques of her youth; Carpet of many hands, a textile assemblage of collected and found textiles that have been collaged and recontextualized into a contemporary artwork; and Abandoned details, Torma’s latest series of hand embroideries, which reference a shift in her practice towards a more abstracted and open arrangement.
