As part of the Florilege project, I am creating a manuscript of embroidered, illustrated and collaged research and texts which explore the relationship between histories of medicine and food. Participants in the workshop 'Sewing, Eating, & Knowledge-Formation' (click the link to find out all the details and context) contributed to this manuscript, and for the exhibition I created an embroidered version of a previous text Nerve Storms which was originally published in Orlando Magazine. You can see both of these in the slider galleries below.
The manuscript is still ongoing. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.
How deep is your love
It has to be baby plum
Food is a convenient metaphor for existence
Cheese of the soul
Hands and desire
