Ee um fah um soo foo suii too eem oo…
Embroidery with golden thread on home-loomed cloth, embroidery hoop
"[...] Ee um fah um soo foo suii too eem oo... are in fact the lingering nonsensical words sang by a beggar on the street on which the literary character Peter Walsh walks by in Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway. This sensorial memento is meant to create connections between seemingly disparate spaces and roles – linking the traditional embroidery practice to a literary passage, to the different mental triggers pertaining to both worlds. The artist uses imagery and invokes memories of her own, but focuses more on the intersections between them rather than describing a specific moment and context. This anonymization contributes to the building on larger themes connected with traditional roles of womanhood, social norms and the individual response to political and economic shifts, to the way we all build our trajectories of the self throughout the world.
