About The Artwork

On: a place on the map that you are physically at or connected with - a home or a home away from home On is one from the series of 7 Titled- 'In Lure of New Worlds. The new series of work that continues my explorations of the interplay among memory, place, identity and belonging, through a meditative process of repetitive stitching. Each piece represents an abstract map of an imagined new world. My technique involves shredding printed fabrics of collected old maps and other artefacts, which make my thread for embroidery. Through these, I have stitched maps of new worlds that are without borders, boundaries or identities; instead, these new worlds are an abstraction of balance, harmony and co-existence.

Archana's practice is of British and Indian heritage and specialise in stitch and fine art textiles. She collects and works with found memory artefacts such as old photographs, postcards, letters, diaries and maps. Through these, she is been exploring the notion of home and belonging also the interplay of memory, place and identity in it. Often these artefacts are old maps that bring forth the evolving nature of boundaries – both physical as well as psychological. Along with these constantly evolving boundaries, are the identities that are being re-shaped. .The collected artefacts are the starting point and the most important material which eventually takes shape of the thread that she uses. She prints these artefacts on a fabric and cut very fine laces out of these to make her threads. She, then, recreates a visual art piece by very slow, repetitive almost meditative hand-sewing.
