Defenestration Lace

For her series titled 'Defenestration Lace' Brooklyn-based artist Amelia Bauer created a series of needlepoint and lace handkerchiefs decorated with cinema-derived defenestration scenes from Hollywood films. Amelia explains,"I think as Americans we have so many emotional experiences in movies before, if ever, we have them in reality. Yet, the reality is that our country is waging war, and there are all kinds of destruction and violence that I feel very detached from. I wanted to make pieces that mourned fictional deaths as a way of demonstrating that disconnect."
