Textile Center presents:

ON BORROWED TIME: POSTPONING THE INEVITABLE
Installation by Maggie Thompson

May 12 – June 25, 2016 • Joan Mondale Gallery

As an Ojibwe woman of mixed heritage, Maggie Thompson works with an intuitive hand to bridge cultures and traditions gathered from firsthand experiences. On Borrowed Time is about her experience of losing a parent—namely, her father, in 2014. Mining ideas of loss and memory, she explores how grief is a highly personal experience; every individual’s process is unique and perpetuates a person’s evolving identity.

Thompson utilizes textiles as a way to contain memory, to reflect, and to tell difficult stories. The medium of fiber helps her to rebuild a textured past and learn the history of her people through making.
