Vessel of Devotion | Textile Sculpture



"The white and gold vessel captures peace, purity and godliness while reimagining the fluid and graceful movements and patterns of ‘Alpana’ motifs and traditional lace patterns. The vessel is constructed by laser cut felt coated with ‘Powertex’ (a fabric hardener) and held together by gold intersection stitch.

The vessel encapsulates Jennifa’s childhood memories and identity, the three-dimensional vessels are both encapsulating and projecting, internalising and externalising, public and private, whilst exploring Muslim, Bengali and Western cultures. To reveal a conceptual link capturing the identity and femininity of my mother and other mothers—me, you, us. The Vessel visually expresses the cultural boundaries and the uniqueness of the female gender- outside looking in, the viewer's interaction with light/shadows projection around the installations.

This has allowed her to plunge deeper and acknowledge the multiplicity of cultures belonging to several groups and consequently having several identities and even loyalties. This has consciously and sometimes subconsciously directed her personal life decisions and choices."
