Allyson Mitchell
Hungry Purse
2004

"From floor to ceiling, folds of large pink pillows, soft drapes and carpeting comfort and cocoon. At the same time, the installation creates feelings of unease as the participant confronts their fears of claustrophobia, genitalia, mortality and appetites. Hungry Purse refers to 21st-century addictions to consumption that result in credit card debt, over-shopping, and the lines of credit that swallow people up and overtax nature. Mitchell’s commitment to reworking found textiles and handicrafts is a comment upon the excessive availability of second-hand goods that are loaded with emotion and sentimentality, to erect an ‘other’ space from which the vagina dentata can be considered, accepted and literally moved through. Pinker than pink, the Hungry Purse is a symbol of the opposing virtues of femininity and ‘girl power’. It is a rumpus room and a vortex womb - an affirmation of the feminized body." - Curator Sarah Quinton

Last Saturday, I spent the morning preparing the warp as I usually do, following the traditional Cypriot procedure.

The warp is made on the wall of my workshop which overlooks the inner garden. Two pieces of wood with pegs along them, which are permanently fixed on the wall serve to place the warp threads in such a way so that they are all evenly tensioned. This aligns the threads in the order (and length) in which they will be placed on the loom. To keep track of this order, a cross is made at one end of the warp.

This process takes a few hours to complete and one should take great care in order to have an even tension and make sure that all the threads follow the same path. After all, a well made warp is the basis for a well made fabric!

At the end, the warp is being wound into a big ball!

Even though making the warp can be a bit tiring, I enjoy the process very much! 

Seriously astounded at this warp master. Here’s to good tension, no knots, and an even weave! Fantastic job and great documentation! Yay fiber!

Documenting work about documentation is - well - cyclical. I take my camera, shoot, point. Then, well, more art is born.

A discover of we

Today, I found something. Well Something that was never lost. Lots of those lost things resurfacing of late, only out of a realization of finding them on the end of your desk, where you kept placing it over and over again, your higher self, until you were ready to find it. It isn’t lost anymore. 

All shiny and silver, but not so new like something shiny might be, but more like something less new and more weather. Maybe the grip of my palm will wilt it with some love. A Grey GE Fast Playback AVR device. This baby picks up some “groovy jams” and makes me want to go a little crazy to see how far it will travel with me. Inanimate devices never expect anything to extraordinary, so I can settle on dictation less than loud enough for a meeting or lecture, or as Mr.GE calls it “general use”. There is maybe nothing so useful about  my generality. 

I need to start jotting down yucky stuff about being here or there. 

Back to the drawing     painting     hurting recording board.
