ABOUT THE EXHIBIT | In this body of work, Melo explores identities of place, belonging, and migration in a work that is a hybrid of textile practices from South, Central and North America giving particular relevance to the gesture of stitching as metaphor of feminine labor.

ABOUT THE ARTIST | Born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, Michelle Melo is an artist living and working in New York City. She holds a BFA in Contemporary Sculpture from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. As a multidisciplinary artist, Melo has addressed the concept of the feminine from an intimate perspective by carefully selecting objects that have meaning in the field of memory to resignify them.
