Frances Dorsey, Shot Through the Heart

Frances Dorsey, Shot Through the Heart 2010
found table linens (linen and cotton)
11 ft x 11 ft installed
26 May 2018 – 26 Aug 2018

Drawn from the MSVU Collection, these works of art incorporate household textiles such as bedding, a tea towel, table linens and discarded clothing. The domestic references are embedded in works whose imagery also engages with gender politics and world events.

The various artists share a collage approach to composition, and their works display techniques ranging from assemblage, dying, printing and hooking to embroidery, appliqué, stuffing and stitching. Frances Dorsey, Nancy Edell, Svava Juliusson, Leslie Sampson and Anna Torma are the contributing artists. Dorseys Shot through the Heart is a recently acquired fabric assemblage that has not previously been exhibited.
