Time Spaces - Prologue (part III)

Time Spaces - Prologue (part III), 2022 
Chenda Cope in collaboration with audience-participants
December 1 - 10, 2022

The initial work, Time Spaces - Prologue, is a text about living with chronic illness embroidered on a bedsheet (76 x 92”). From September 14 – October 8 of this year, the piece was installed in Herter Gallery as part of a group show. The installation included an invitation for audience-participants to engage with the text through the tactile act of making a rubbing and to hang their work alongside the embroidered piece for the duration of the show. I now invite audience-participants to visit the gallery to take their pieces home.
