Cosy was exhibited at Centerspace Gallery, Bristol, UK in 2012.
Cosy is an exhibition about love, obsession, the body and knitting. It explores the compulsion to cocoon loved ones in hand made, lopsided jumpers, to wrap someone or something up, to keep it warm and safe even to the point that it can no longer escape or breathe. It examines human interactions, the space between bodies, touch and the sensation of not quite touching, and plays with our ability to perceive the world around us. Viewers were invited to interact with the artworks and “inhabit” the costumes.
