Before it finds its way into personal possession, linen’s value emerges from being laborious to manufacture, a process, which makes its natural fibres forever strong and absorbent. Following this birth, it’s ongoing presence is linked to the home: reminiscent of a mother’s linen cupboard, a grandmother’s linen chest, time and time again, lining the family’s beds, bathrooms, tables and windows. 
Passed down through generations, the durable material traverses and embodies the memory of familial experience and emotion. Grief, trauma, loss, but also resilience, regrowth and triumph are profoundly personal, whilst communal in the universality of human experience. 

(Words by Tahney Fosdike)

Art Aviso Artists worldwide were provided with an A4-sized piece of linen/cotton fabric reclaimed from vintage tablecloths and remnants. The linen was to be used as the foundation for an artwork that is an expression of the challenges, loss and grief we currently face in our everyday lives and also the triumphs, large and small that we create and experience along the way.  Completed artworks will be joined together to create an installation artwork – A communal expression of the current state of the world in which we live.
Art Aviso, will work with Amsterdam based Curator Roza Schenk to bring this exhibition to Amsterdam and images of completed artworks will also be exhibited online in a virtual exhibition.
