Artist Statement

Cloth has a memory like the body. I create fabric installation that explore the precarity of the postpartum body. Residue of physical and emotional trauma are captured on the surface of the floating maternal forms. Color from foraged plants and “saddened” with iron and calcium, records the depletion of energy and essential nutrients used to grow new life.

Emily Zarse is an installation artist working with the language of natural dyes and fiber processes to explore the maternal body and matrescence. She received a degree in Costume and Textile History from Cornell University and is currently a MFA candidate at Indiana University.
