Over and Under – body-knitting into life. The work explores knitting as a concept, whereby this heritage craft becomes a model of human relationships. Two entities, working together, create a material. Two human bodies start moving to become knitting needles, the choreography of knitting unfolds into space and materialises into a story of two people collaborating.
The work is a part of an intriguing discourse in “Knitting after Making: what we do with what we make”, 2019 by Jessica Hemmings
