In progress currently in the studio for my Borderlands series; several architectural Bojagi textiles made with calico and cotton from the UK representing the five directional colours of South Korea; blue, white, black, red and yellow.

Borderlands is a body of work which provides a meeting point of my South Korean and U.K history. The Bojagi panels laid, pinned, stitched into geometric shapes form borders and territories similar to those found on maps and in the physical landscape. These fabric maps chart an intuitive remembered history of real and imagined journeys I have taken across and between both countries.
