Turner Contemporary Open Exhibition

October 2021 to February 2022


Two sculptures from Threads, the Pie Factory Margate 2019 Installation are in the Turner Open Exhibition



Threads, 2019

Singer treadle sewing machines, paper, thread and photo etching


This installation searches for connection. My mother, Bina Korngold fled from Vienna in 1939, to escape the Nazis. As soon as she was able to speak English, she gave up speaking German forever as a private stand against the killing of her parents Markus and Bruche Korngold. 

Threads uses the politics of repair, stitching time, placing images of our mother, my sister, Gita and I, close to those of our lost Viennese grandparents. 


The construction of this installation was made in partnership with textile artist Shelley G Beach.

Print copy made in collaboration with Hayden Blyth.

Blue photo etching made by Barbarita Marks.
