Alex Dolores Salerno and Francisco echo Eraso, Regalos, 2020, Used Pillowcase, Handspun Thread, Hair, 94″ x 46″
Regalos is a white pillowcase with swirly textures that has been split open revealing a doubling of sweat stains from where a head might rest. The pillowcase dips slightly in the middle and is hung horizontally from its top two corners by T-pins. The piece hangs about an inch off the wall, roughly 7.8 feet high and 3.8 feet across. Cascading from the fabric are numerous strands of handspun golden thread hanging down reaching the floor. Short locks of straight dark brown hair are knotted all along each golden strand. The locks curl, twist and turn, and appear to be dancing despite their stillness.
