About Klara Pousette

The artistic practice of Klara Pousette is founded in an interest in the properties or associations one can attribute to a material or object, particularly textile materials conventionally associated with femininity. In her book The Subversive Stitch: Embroidery and the Making of the Feminine (1984) Rozsika Parker describes how women historically learned to be feminine through embroidering, which led to embroidery itself being viewed as inherently feminine. 
Pousette works with the parallel to the way which certain crafts or cultural expressions are socially constructed as ‘feminine’ today.
