Place of Reflection

We started by sitting together in Grace

Ndiritu’s Temple in the gallery, part of the

exhibition Our Silver City, 2094, doing

some tapestry stitching. The Temple’s

concepts were relaxation, meditation and

expression for groups and individuals.

We built our own interpretation of a

temple, a place of relaxation, reflection

and calm. We expressed ourselves in how

we used the materials; canes, reusable

cable ties, fabrics, wool, lace.

Afterwards we sat together and reflected

and appreciated the feeling of safety and

sharing, where no ideas were wrong.

“Working in union; working as a team,

no judgement, having fun”.

“I feel more ready to be creative again

in a playful capacity. It has brought my

creative freedom back after it being

lost for so long since my breakdown”.
