Keep the Girls Safe Textile Installation
Keep the Girls Safe Installation, 2016, Natural dyes, cotton and linen fabric, Size (m): 3.50 x 1.50
Textile installation was specifically created for the “Keep the Girls Safe Campaign”. The campaign’s mission was to engage the industries of Beauty and Fashion as powerful allies in the fight to end sex trafficking. I created 6 Freedom-inspired naturally dyed recycled fabric panels, that were dropped from the ceiling into the space below. I used recycled fabric because it is already charged with layers of history and personal stories.
Together with the dance performance, textile installation revealed psychological and environmental messages related to sex trafficking. Photos by Dasha Dare
