SKART Reunion Residency

10 February 07 - 03 March 07

A Visiting Arts funded project Belgrade-based artists SKART are on a Reunion residency in February in London. They will be continuing their New Embroideries project with women and children living in Hackney. The workshops subvert traditional Balkan embroideries by creating contemporary rhymes and images that relate to the makers´ own experiences. The final pieces will be displayed in local public places in Hackney. Past New Embroideries makers include the Single Mothers Association in Belgrade, women´s refugee groups, and village embroidery groups in Serbia, Austria and Germany. SKARTís residency in London is part of Reunion, an art / research project by Sophie Hope. The residency was also supported by SPACE with additional funding from the Austrian Cultural Forum, London.
