Sunshine and Shadow (2013)
Sunshine and Shadow is catalogue design for Sabrina Gschwandtner’s Film Quilts exhibition at Philadelphia Art Alliance.
“Made from acetate or polyester, materials that could not be less cozy, they lack the raison d’être of most quilts: comfort. Gschwandtner’s creations offer a subtle rebuke to the notion that in order to be valid, women’s labor must be of use to someone, or, more specifically, should serve the well-being of their families. Gschwandtner’s quilts decouple the relationship between the personal, tactile pleasure of creation and the domestic utility of a quilt as bedclothes or even decor.” —Sarah Archer
