Kagbeni explores narratives about geography and the nature of place. It focuses on the physical landscape of the Kali Gandhi gorge, a trade route between India and Tibet, south of Kagbeni, Nepal. It is a place where spatial and geological oppositions of resilience and fragility dominate. The sensory experience of dust storms and migrant travel, etched in my memory, inform the piecing and hand stitching of repurposed linens, cloth, wool and printed cotton fabric.
