redress [ree-dres]
verb

With Lia Rousset and Carla Duarte

The wool from unraveled sweaters becomes re-knit, activating a system of doing, undoing, and redoing. Stringing the gallery like a machine, the labor from harvesting second hand sweaters threads the room, while knitting transforms the space into a sustained function. Visitors are invited to add to redress by coming into the space to knit, skillshare, learn, converse, or contemplate. As we all struggle to feel connected to the systems that make up our lives, the lines of thread — moving through readymade materials and into our hands — activates us as participants while providing a place of comfort.
