Transcribed Excerpt from HANDS
Transcribed Excerpt from HANDS by Lauren Leja.
Lauren Leja has always written, collected, and made things. During the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020, Lauren started to explore artist books and wondered, why can’t a dress be a book? This piece explores the tension between feminism/femininity and modern language versus the preciousness of the garment.

Material: Antique baby garment from the early 1900s, ink, shadow box
Why we covet: Why can't a dress be a book?
