"Breaking Borders: Mental Mapping of a Suffragette"
Naturally dyed fabric, textiles, thread, yarn and cotton fabric
"Breaking Borders" approaches the Suffrage movement from the inner soul of the Suffragettes. The power of will, the resilence and all the aspects that came into place for women to break the boundaries of a mindset that was in place for many centuries. It is a tribute to those who crossed not the physical borders, but the mental ones; those that got out of their comfort zone to face their fears, and were brave enough to fight against all the limitations of the time. Those who were not afraid to change the normalcy; and achieved it by embracing their power and showing it to the world, but most importantly, to themselves.
