Servitude

The murder of George Floyd by a police officer in May 2022 triggered Servitude. Not being a native of the U.S., I needed to educate myself about Black history and the antiracist struggle. I embraced the black square, symbol of the Black Lives Matter movement, to create allegories embroidered with black thread on American vintage doilies and handkerchiefs.
