Broken English 1981
Collection The National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto, Japan.
Broken English is a 1979 album by Marianne Faithfull; I really liked the ambiguity inherent in the title. I’d wanted to make an all-white mesh work for a while, my intention to use fragments and snippets of text.
Included in the 1982 exhibition British Needlework, The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto and The National Museum of Modern art, Tokyo, Japan.
White Lies 1981, made at the same time as Broken English was included in the 1982 Crafts Council, exhibition The Maker's Eye. I was one of 14 Selectors asked to choose work that summed up the crafts for the 1980’s.
