As a part of In Flux: Chicago Artists and Immigration at the Chicago Cultural Center, Sabba Elahi invites the public to “redraw a COVID-19 cure,” creating a collective work of healing. A small tile/fragment of an interior view of the coronavirus cell will be shared with each participant. During the workshop participants are asked to respond to their visual fragment to “redraw a cure,” through drawing and/or stitching, using materials they on hand – from colored pencils, pens, sharpies/markers, needle/thread. The workshop artwork and written responses will be translated by Elahi into new works, two machine embroidered textiles: one of the new collective image and the other a word cloud of the most common words/phrases gathered from all participants.
