Knee – Scan

Knee - Scan

"Scan", Sophie Knee. Indigo batik bed sheet. $2000

On the surface, “Scan” is a kind of family portrait: a husband, a wife, no kids, two
cats, on a bedsheet (that’s important because it’s a domestic object), the image
created by means of a sewn resist (which matters because sewing is “women’s’
work”), and indigo dye (ditto).
Like the medical scans from which I drew inspiration, “Scan” is a two-dimensional
reduction of three-dimensional bodies, in which things usually hidden are
revealed, and things usually visible become obscured.
