For the first time, Antoni started working with materials that embody personal memories and stories that are not her own. The materials for Moor are gifts given to the artist by my family and friends. Each strand connects intimately to a person’s life. Moor is an object made up of individual stories that have been entwined together to make a rope. It will continue to grow as Antoni does, and will reflect the people that come into her life. As Antoni says: "Moor is a lifeline."
