As sewn to the Earth
The drawings are made on pattern pieces adapted from clothing found at Herjolfsnæs, a Norse settlement on Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), during an archaeological dig in 1921. The textiles found date back to the 11th/12th century. The clothes acted as coffins in place of wood, which was scarce, there being few trees. In effect they are burial shrouds, worn through life and death.
