In the exhibition Sutures, Eve Tagny and Emii Alrai have stitched together duelling notions of a wound across explosive times and physical space. After injury, a suture weaves broken pieces back into a whole. Its bands pull together, forcing two lacerations to meet as the body recovers from incision. Though rough and imperfect, these markings imply a severing that at once imprint signifiers of new life and healing.
