Sophia Narrett: Certain Magic

June 12 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until June 17, 2018

Sophia Narrett uses embroidery to tell stories about love and desire. Her work explores love as a transformative experience that has the ability to bring purpose, initiate self-discovery, alleviate pain, and offer joy, as well as its potential to bring heartbreak, miscommunication, and manipulation. Each piece begins as a narrative premise shaped by Narrett’s experiences or thoughts. She then gathers source images from the Internet, screenshots from movies and TV, and photos she collects, to build complex digital collages that she bases her embroideries on. In this way she uses the language of pop culture and social media to express her own desires and fears, and the deep sense of conflict we are faced with as we try to navigate love and the evolving nature of identity against treacherous media portrayals of what we should be and want.

Sunday 12 – 6 p.m.
