WHERE THREADS COME TOGETHER: SEWING SESSIONS WITH STEPHANIE IMBEAU AT THE BÄRENZWINGER

WHERE THREADS COME TOGETHER: SEWING SESSIONS WITH STEPHANIE IMBEAU AT THE BÄRENZWINGER

The artist Stephanie Imbeau seeks to understand how people build connections, find refuge, and form networks. She investigates these connections as an artist in residence at Bärenzwinger. Every Thursday afternoon during her residency, she invites visitors to open Sewing Sessions: together, they will work on a single piece of art that will adorn the exhibition space like a second skin. It will be attached to scaffolding designed by Imbeau, which is part of the parallel exhibition “Roaming Winters.” In the show, she and fellow artist and resident Sujatro Ghosh aim to render communities and collective efforts visible in performance-based installations. While her current sewing project is about collaborative design and experimenting with fabric, smaller pieces will also be created in the process. “I hope that these times can be both productive and cozy,” says Stephanie Imbeau, “at least in the way of sewing circles, offering a time to work with others, while sharing stories, ideas, and presence. Anyone and everyone are welcome at her sessions – anyone who wishes is welcome to bring their own sewing machine; for everyone else, Imbeau keeps a needle and thread handy.
