Proverbial Threads by Robbin Ami Silverberg

For the series I chose to focus on text, working with proverbs from cultures around the world that focus on woman’s work. It consists of an open series (over 100) of industrial bobbins, each wrapped with paper threads that have printed on them a repeated proverb about women’s work. Here is a small selection of proverbs:

  1. “The threaded needle judges the girl.” (Spanish, Argentina)
  2. “The only skill that women have is turning the spinning wheel.” (Hebrew)
  3. “A household with a woman is like a flower bed, a household without one like a wasteland.” (Uzbek)
  4. “A wife is the best piece of furniture.” (Dutch)
  5. “However smart a woman may be, she will end up in the kitchen.” (Indonesian)
  6. “Do not humiliate your wife; she is your home.” (Ovambo, Angola/ Namibia)
  7. “Housewife at home, pancake in honey.” (Russian)

The Imperfections by Sopi Su

The inspiration came from the Japanese author Sei Shonagon, best known as the author of The Pillow Book. It is a book of observations about her life during the early 11 th century while she was serving in the court of the Empress. It includes her personal thoughts, interesting events and poetry. This project is based on my observations of daily life’s imperfections, and each words or sentences are laser-cut out of card.
