PIECE /WORK

I’m happy to be working on a new project in collaboration with Katherine Ferrier. It will be part of the exhibition Can’t Take My Eyes Off You at SPEEDWELL Projects gallery in Portland, Maine from September 7-9, 2022.

We have been invited for a 4-day residency at The Cannery in Penobscot, ME, to explore ideas, and will do a small showing there on Saturday, August 20th.


PIECE / WORK is a durational performance/installation by queer, cross-disciplinary artists Katherine Ferrier and Meg Wolfe that disrupts traditional techniques of both improvisational movement and patchwork. They explore emerging forms, nascent friendship, and neurodivergence; centering process and collaborative sense-making.

Two figures alternate between sorting a giant pile of fabric scraps, stitching at two sewing machines, moving in the space, and attaching sewn pieces to the wall. The work unfolds over three days, building both a physical patchwork that grows in size, and a shared movement language that grows in complexity and nuance. Viewers are invited into an intimate witnessing as the space is transformed, seam by seam, gesture by gesture.
