Amra Causevic on her practice

Since the studios have been locked down, I wasn’t able to make as much. I had some materials that I was able to bring home. There, I was sewing a tapestry that I’m still in process of making. I continued making what I had before the lockdown, although everything has, like my mental perspective, shifted quite a bit.

Now I’m trying merge my old self to my new self.

A lot of my work is interactive and touch base and often times I ask people to interact with my sculptures and installations.

I think it’s about community and building empathy.
