ShuiShuta (Needle & Thread): an interactive performance/installation
Bangladeshi-American feminist artist Monica Jahan Bose creates a performance with hand-woven saris from Bangladesh, exploring questions of labor, gender & industry, including the inequitable gender impacts of the garment industry and climate change. Bose uses the hand-woven cotton sari as a symbol for womenâ€™s bodies and the cycle of life on our planet. She invites viewers to join the performance by sewing with her and writing or drawing personal climate pledges on a sari. The sari will later be worn as a garment by a coastal woman in Bangladesh. The performance is woman-led, but allies of all genders may join.
