Made in Europe - Christine Seager

Christine Seager, United Kingdom - Fabrications 1

All our clothes, food and electrical goods have labels which tell us where they are made. Most of these labels do not tell us about the working conditions of the makers or the wages they receive for their labour.  We assume that goods manufactured in Europe are made in humane conditions – do we really know or care?

Whole cloth with added markings and text, overlaid with dribbled inks. Hand stitched

Hand dyed fabric embellished with text and mark making using POSCA pens, Sharpies, Acrylic inks and Gesso.
