Cultivator is pleased to feature Kate Ingold for our inaugural exhibit in our Chicago exhibition space.
Kate Ingold will be exhibiting pieces from her “Damaged Goods_Small Repairs” series addressing issues of mourning and loss. Included are several hand manipulated photographs of taxidermied animals in dioramas, broken figurines, and cracked pavements,that she scratches delicate circular patterns or stitches fine threads across.Ingold sources genuinely damaged pieces, then mends them, such as with her antique thread-bare mourning quilts. She methodically hand stitches metallic threads in a slow pattern across the preexisting patchwork.
