Angie Wilson investigates labor, consumerism, and the handmade. She reworks Persian carpet motifs, American rag rugs, and other craft traditions to question cultural consumption while reflecting on traditions of re-use in the midst of growing income inequality. Through repurposing and reconfiguring preexisting materials, Wilson connects her hand to the invisible hands of anonymous largely forgotten makers, from rug weavers to industrial garment manufacturers.
