a pop-up quilt tour which explores gender as a social construct
False Dichotomies uses the time-honored medium of fiber to explore the pervasive black and white thinking of our larger society and insists on thoughtful reflection to deepen or widen that thinking.
Popular during Victorian times and persisting as a classic option today, the traditional black and white hexagonal tiles of bathroom floors resonate specifically in this life-size statement piece as it presents a blended human figure constructed entirely of one-inch fabric tiles.
Still forming, as is the understanding by many that gender is a social construct, False Dichotomies invites conversation among viewers as they witness the formation of the body and consider their own body’s presentation in the world.
