At My Mother's Knee is an assemblage where I created connected edges of screen printed window screens and grandmother's textile fabrics that stored at old wooden cabinets. At My Mother's Knee shows the theme of in-between spaces of memories from the Korean family's lives, especially, about the mother who dedicated her lifetime in a patriarchal family. I map out my interests from the family's photo album into a furniture-like sliding window or door structure beyond the threshold. I focused on the background with the view of the house and empty figures which indicated color impressions from my childhood memories.
