Woven textile; material cotton, sculpture form made in epoxy resin. Can we be aware of the line between private and public activity in our lives? Is that harder if the subject is the one who creates? Weaving in her room, did Bojana's grandmother ever think that by creating that piece of material on the loom, her life would go from a private to a public one (inaccessible to her at the time)? By transposing a piece of textile that Bojana weaves by hand into an object titled installation in space, she breaks through the thin line between the private and the public. Bojana makes the soft structure of the fabric stop, freezing it, making it hard as stone, so that the outside view can feel how it slides under her fingers, rounded and tender.
