Shaelene Murray: Kin

Shaelene Murray’s practice is grounded in concepts of feminism as well as childhood memories and the confines of familial and societal expectations. Using what the artist calls ‘steel on steel embroidery’ she builds textile come sculptural pieces of clothing, on absent bodies, which are cast in a symbolic play of the relationship between mother and child. The result is a beautiful, familiar and yet eerie display, as the artist says to show that ‘strength and fragility can co-exist.’
