Pleasure, incomprehensible at Adjacent To Life


Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Pleasure, incomprehensible: Embroidery by Hannah Duke.

Embroiderer Hannah Duke explores and expands upon the assumptions surrounding the “craft” of needlework. Embracing embroidery’s wedding of beauty and utility, her work explores the medium’s historic role as a form of inter-generational knowledge-transfer – while simultaneously investigating contemporary issues and expressions of gender, sensuality, time, mediation and personal narrative.

Pleasure, incomprehensible: Embroidery by Hannah Duke runs through December 2 and is on view at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City).
