Spindles 100: Hers, 2017 - 2018
Installation involving 100 textile sculptures (spindles 17x3x3 in. each)
Variable size
 
The installation is a collective art work in which 50 women were invited to put their own hand prints on two white textile sculptures using red paint.emma1Jacquie Inspired by the shapes of tree seed pods (like the Kapok), chrysalises, distaffs and spindles I have created a textile sculpture in a contemporary shape. Distaff and spindle are old instruments used for spinning of natural fibers. They symbolize exclusively feminine work and are a symbol of life and time. The motif of hand prints has been present in my work for several years, as both subject and as tool for painting. Embracing the uniqueness of each individual, hand prints are both individual and universal symbol for humanity and demonstrate memories of touch and our collective unconscious.
