Gloves 1998-present

These exquisite gloves, imported into South Africa from Europe, manufactured in fine satin, or soft kid with handstitched soft leather, delicate embroidery and careful beading, inhabited a world where in public covered hands and matching garments were de-riguer. Other inhabitants of this time and space were various events and political acts which put in place the ultimate societal separation. In this piece of work these two worlds are brought together through traditional methods of labelling and display.
