this was my embroidery work based on the story of Bolivia and the Spanish conquistadors in Bolivia.
I am fascinated with cloth and fabric as not only a metaphor but as an actual way of transmitting history from a geneeration to the next. Should I pass this embroidery work to my children in the future, what would they think of the PVC that I used for the mountains and the shiny silver beads used to represent the silver in the ´mine´?
Probably nothing, because all history would someday be forgotten.
SO. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. FASHION AS A SITE OF RESISTANCE/DECOLONIZING/STORY TELLING. fucking badass!!!
