Event Description

May 16 - 29, Opening May 16, 8pm

Home-made Home-grown is a series of hand-stitched felt flags. These are the flags of sub-national organizations who use sophisticated and contrasting means to seek attention and signal their individuality, both in traditional and modern ways. The authority and legitimacy of these flags is unquestionable to those who stand under them. At the same time they are internationally questioned and unrecognized.

The process of hand-stitching these flags directly relates to the social, cultural, and political issues which surround the series. Through their meticulous production these flags are being returned to the point of their inaugural creation and to the moment before they could be reproduced and disseminated. It is important that the work momentarily restores these flags as artifacts with a visual and cultural origin, not the entrenched political symbols which they have become.
