Big Hoop

A collaboration between Flora Lechner & Meghan Clarke.

By taking the embroidery hoop and its contents as the starting point, and blowing them up to a monumental scale, the tools and labour of this traditionally timid and hidden activity become unashamedly visible.

Presented as part of the group show ‘In Reverie’ at Dutch Design Week 2021 and as a performance in Rotterdam in December 2021 that was part parade and part protest.

Performers - Roberta Di Cosmo, Matilde Patuelli, Flora Lechner & Meghan Clarke
