MANANG, FROM QUARANTINE WITH LOVE

June 21, 2020 | Archives | No Comments

Tacked to housed stasis, we find objects to fiddle – disfigured dolls, yellowing family photographs, generations-old duster, crumbling baby sneakers, etc. During this downtime, “Manang ❤” thumbs through patchworks of homely rumination and embroiders a correspondence for the mother […]
