Textile Installation

2021 Norderstedt Art Award

Gallery Level One Hamburg, 2021 CVJM Hamburg

In 2018, every fourth woman in Germany was a victim of physical or sexual violence in their relationship and, in that year alone, 122 women were murdered (femicide). On 122 cleaning rags, I embroidered in black thread 122 representative women’s names standing for the women who were killed by their partners or ex-partners. The cleaning rags lie in a loose arrangement on the floor. Spectators are free to walk through the installation, to step on and touch the rags.

Material: cleaning rags, embroidery thread
