Embroider yourself!

On 1st October 2011, MOCAK hosted Monika Drożyńska's project Embroider yourself! The participants had an opportunity to embroider words expressing difficult emotions on textile and felt, prepared by the artist especially. In this way, they all became collaborators on the artist's project. Its crowning glory will be a huge tapestry entirely covered in embroidery so as to render the aggressive or hurtful words embroidered on it almost illegible.
