Embodied Labour, Adam Garratt

Embod­ied Labour’ fea­tures Adam’s recent work using Hi-Vis work­wear and domes­tic process­es such as sewing, fold­ing and tex­tile alterations.

Adam Garratt's practice has evolved around constraints of space, the use of material and repetitious making processes. Conscious not to make extra waste, Adam chooses carefully which materials to make work with. They come with their own history of use and bare the marks of an embodied labour, often with holes, creases, tears, dirt and staines. ‘Embodied Labour’ features Adam’s recent work using Hi-Vis workwear and domestic processes such as sewing, folding and textile alterations. The work is dictated by what is found or donated and embraces the material forms, allowing its own narrative to inform the work. The exhibition is supported by Arts & Culture Exeter.
