SARA FAHLING: UNMENDED

July 6–29, 2018

Unmended is an exploration of familial legacy in the aftermath of loss. The pieces in this series, photographs of my deceased grandparents’ farmhouse in the years before and after their passing, represent a home in transition through the stages of grief and acceptance. Unmended merges photographs, textiles, and hand embroidery to express a looming fear of memory loss. In an attempt to hold close the memories associated with this place, photographs are layered and mended together in an effort to repair what is easily forgotten.
