Hudson D. Walker Gallery, Fine Arts Work Center, Massachusetts, USA
The piece was shown in a solo exhibition titled Ordinary Days, and was created during the residency at Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, USA.
The piece was inspired by the location – by its history as well as its surroundings. Provincetown is the first landing place of Pilgrim Fathers in 1620. While I was there, I often strolled on the beach and looked at the sea where their ship had traveled. In such moments, I sensed the repetition and continuity of days – after their ‘Day One’ up to my ‘today’ (here and now).
Piecing is similar to patchwork. It is small shirt-shaped cotton fabric pieces sewn together. It amounted some12 meters in length in total.
