The Cocoon by Susan Lenz

February 26, 2020 - Posted in Local by Libby Dallis

 

The Cocoon is a fiber installation created by Susan Lenz during a Summer 2018 art residency at the Rensing Center outside of Pickens, South Carolina. The Cocoon was created from Susan's enormous stash of vintage household linens, antique garments, and assorted old textiles. It pays homage to the anonymous makers of all these embroideries and embellishments, while providing a soft, safe place for the public to share stories of their relatives who stitched in the past.
