DESCRIPTION

Handwoven cotton | 2020

Following frequent doctor’s visits for ongoing medical treatment, Weiner collects the medical gauze used on her body and transforms these blood-stained bandages into woven textiles to explore concepts of control, structure, and transformation. Using hand-dyed thread on her digital jacquard loom, Weiner renders the gauze on a 1:1 scale, replicating the spontaneous abstract form that the bodily fluid formed on the bandage. This duplicate becomes a sterilized relic, memorializing the often overlooked and discarded material while creating a quasi-self portrait through the imprint or residue of the artist’s body. This work — her wounds — reflects Weiner’s struggle to come to terms with illness and the oftentimes unforgiving body, calling into question how one can shift the narrative around illness into one of healing.
