Concept & Design by Mélika Hashemi for the CAFKA Biennial 2023
Quilt by Nasim Asgari
“The Break an Error, the Error a Passageway uses the poetic possibilities of patchwork to draw disparate images and materials close. When presented side-by-side, images and videos become split-second captures, creating patterns. Quilts reference codes and ways of encoding information, allowing for the generative breaking of strict patterns.
A glitch is created each time one piece of fabric meets another; each intersection is a fading memory where information has been lost, altered or distorted. Inspired by the visual language of glitches and multiplicity, The Break an Error, the Error a Passageway, lends itself to the Instagram grid aesthetic. At the same time, its title draws from Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto by Legacy Russell.
