The practice of mending, normally done in one's own home, is traditionally a solitary activity, in which one mends their own clothing. In this practice however, myself and fellow Co-op members have mended each other's clothes. Through this exchange we have gotten close to the skin, repairing each other's own wear and tear. This simple act of mending what is broken, has brought us closer.
The Mending Project was originally a part of The Co-op Project during the summer of 2014, in September of that year the project traveled to Oxbow to be a part of the Guest Artist Project, run by Dulcee Boehm. This two day project consisted of mending alongside some of the fall residency artists.
