Looming Voyage (Mending): Christine Foerster

A traveling piece of To Do, Christine Foerester and her two daughters, Sol and Sabrina will be setting up a creation/ meditation in eight iconic public spaces from Iceland to Portugal. The public will be invited to write a message inspired by the word “mend” on cloth, paper, string or ribbon and then weave it into a tapestry panel. The collapsible structure will then come back to San Diego, November 3, where Christine will set up on the plaza near 1805 and weave with the public.

About the Artist

A recipient of an Idea Fund grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Project Row Houses, in Houston, Texas, Artist Incubator Grants from the Museum and Cultural Affairs Department of El Paso, and a Community Arts Project Grant from the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts, Christine creates modular and mobile structures that reshape the dynamics and possibilities of exchange within a given space. After much traveling and education, Christine has settled back in Oceanside where she was born and raised.
