Dimension

47" x 47"

Médium

Hand embroidery on two layers of linen

Cars became the symbols of our mobility with an environmental price. In my piece the recognizable car parts are loosely connected. Are they still in state of repair or everything is falling apart? The intentionally naive visual appearance of this hand embroidered piece hides a question about sustainability, material and spiritual values as we experience it today.
