I'm starting a new rolled book project on the theme of "Birth" for an exhibition in the Spring. I've carefully examined my fabric stash to select pieces which represent to me the qualities of masculinity, femininity and childhood. The masculine element is a rough bandage, the feminine, some basic calico adorned with delicate lace, and the childhood is some fragile muslin. Overlaid is a cord, representing the umbilical cord which never really breaks between parent and child. I have designed this so that the masculine fabric folds over the rest before the book is rolled and closed. I have no idea how this will develop!
