Venue: Paper Dress Boutique, 114-116. Curtain Street, Shoreditch EC2A 3AH

As part of our ongoing motivation to exposing social injustice, the Collective are contributing to Norwegian artist Lise Bjørne Linnert’s current undertaking, entitled DESCONOCIDA Unfamiliar UKJENT.
The undertaking employs the art of embroidery to emphasize and protest again...st human trafficking and femicide, especially in the town of Ciudad Juarez on the Mexican border. Because 1993, 800 women have been brutally murdered in Ciudad Juarez and hundreds far more have gone lacking, while the Mexican authorities turns a blind eye. Prostitution in the area has improved 400% in the identical time interval.
We embroidered the name of a single murdered woman on each and every label alongside the phrase “unknown”, in remembrance of the hundreds of unknown victims of similar crimes around the world. The undertaking is a mass act of solidarity. So significantly, 2100 individuals in 27 nations around the world have embroidered far more than 4000 labels. The Craftivist Collective will include to that determine and aid to unfold recognition of these atrocities.
An set up of the labels will be on demonstrate at PALLANT Residence GALLERY in Chichester in Oct 2010. If you would like to get labels to make your personal contribution, contact Pallant Residence straight.
