Truncations

ARCH Window Gallery, Ryde 2022





Artwork by Joanna Kori, 2022





Truncations was a window installation created in response to the recycled clothing/sewing activities as part of a wider programme of community support work at Aspire Ryde, Isle of Wight.

Suspended in front are charcoal drawings of clothing on tissue paper, a medium choice that references sewing patterns/tailor's chalk.

The contorted dynamic of these drawings - created by sewing, layering and folding paper - reflects on the trauma of truncated lives in suspension, endured by many who receive humanitarian help/support.

A large backdrop drawing of a dark jacket of monstrous proportions looms and frames the suspended frontispieces. Cuttings are scattered beneath.
