Margarita Cabrera: Soft Sculptures

In Margarita Cabrera’s series of soft sculptures, threads left exposed serve as a reminder of the labor involved in the manufacturing of these objects. Taking everyday machines—a blender, sewing machine, coffee pot —she replaces only the parts made by factory workers on the Mexican side of the border. The sagging vinyl imbues the work with an anthropomorphic quality that references the harsh nature of worker’s realities.
