Beatrice Magalotti & Amy Caterina (Australia & USA)
Inspired by a photograph of Beatrice’ Magalotti’s daughters taken on a family vacation in Marlo, Victoria at the mouth of the Snowy River in 2001, these 2 fibre submissions use embroidery and photography to explore grief and joy, an interplay of hand stitching and plastic polaroids that share a narrative. The two young girls in the original photograph are now young women taking on the world.
Work completed by Amy Caterina and Beatrice Magalotti.

Due to the pandemic and not being able to meet we decided to collaborate on art works whenever possible
