Lining: Sheathing is an exhibition experience that explores texture, handwork and embellishment inspired by the human urge to house the body and decorate environments. This installation concept presents volumes of materials that have been printed with textile content and historical designs, covering an enclosure space built for viewers to enter while enveloped in special wrappings for an immersive experience. Artists Denise Bookwalter and Lee Emma Running have collaborated for a year on this multi-faceted concept, which culminates with their residency at Constellation Studios to realize this elaborate and ambitious project.
