Genevieve Strong

Central Saint Martins

Acrylic wool on rug canvas, wooden frame, Perspex frame, clear Perspex rods, battery-operated neon lighting strip. Strong reclaims textiles as a working-class material stemming from and respecting the rich history of Bradford, her hometown, and its nineteenth-century textile mills. Her practice investigates the value of traditional craft in the digital age through an examination of archival photography, digital intervention and textile processes. The image used for her Pixel Screens is an analogue photograph of her great-great-grandmother, who was a gifted needlewoman. Her use of cross-stitch represents pixels to celebrate the skill, time and labour in textile craft and the innovation of a matrilineal tradition.
