Large scale arm knitted yarn forms interactive nets of fibre. My hands and arms become the tools of the knitting process. The cumulative weight of yarn, my body, and casted metal causes the nets to sag and stretch. I calculate the patterns of the nets and trap myself within them. The emotional and physical labour involved in my mental illnesses involve repetition through touch that will never result in an absolute truth.

Nicole Mary is a local emerging artist working towards her BFA in Drawing at the Alberta College of Art + Design and acts as the current director of The Velvet Tracksuits. She works with themes of mental illness and labour through fibre mediums and performance art.
