Parafernalia

2001, a personal embroidery-pattern book, artist's book

Personal handbook with embroidery patterns. Embroidery patterns can be understood as icons, the meaning of which has been lost. Linking these icons to images and drawings gives them a new, personal expression.
The book starts with a definition of the word paraphernalia as given in the official dictionary: ’a woman‘s personal belongings‘.

Het boek wordt ingeleid door een definitie van het woord parafernalia die in de Van Dale gegeven wordt;
’persoonlijke bezittingen van de vrouw‘.
