PRESSING ON No. 85, 2018




Pressing On Series combines artifact, word* and fur – the hardness of iron, the softness of fox fur and the wisdom of words, combine as a testament to generations of women, and the multi-layered heritage, domesticity and female domains that we originate from. Antique sad (solid) irons evoke the tactile, experiential memory - the personal 'herstories'. *text from writings by pro-feminist, abolitionist, educator Hannah More, 1791. More's life-long overriding cause was galvanizing women to act not as domestic ornaments, but as thinking, engaged and responsible beings. Hannah gave the abolition movement a public voice with her writings. Dying in September of 1833, she lived just long enough to see slavery abolished in the British Empire. More's fierce convictions were moral, social and political.
