Donated to the Paonia Community
Amber Imrie-Situnayake and Adriana Villagran collaborated in creating cocoons which represent the homes and businesses of Paonia. Through wet felting techniques, stitching, home-visits, and object collecting they searched to translate the quintessential experience of the location. These cocoons were installed in the upstairs studio at Elsewhere Studios and hung from canopy of woven sticks and twigs collected from around Paonia. The result was an interactive installation that brings into thought the ideas of dwellings, the body, the interior and exterior and the personal and communal.
Paonia Cocoons has went on to be installed at Blue Sage, Paonia and the Hive, Paonia
