Image Statement: Home Labours is a pillar filled with cloth mask scraps collected from home sewers across the nation. It stands the height of the average US female, whose unseen labours have made thousands of masks for the COVID-19 pandemic. This work is a relic, standing as evidence to the labour and care of this domestic army of artists, mothers, and makers.
