Tabitha Moses’ work explores personal and collective histories, often through the creation of delicate sculptural objects that combine stitch and embroidery with found objects and materials. For this exhibition Tabitha presents a series of works that tell stories of relationships and birth.
In an artwork that won Tabitha the prestigious Liverpool Art Prize - three hand embroidered white hospital gowns give an intimate insight into the artist’s own experience of fertility treatment, and that of two other women, while In Vitro remembers the astonishing sight of embryos floating in the cosmos of a Petri dish - viewed during two unsuccessful cycles of IVF.
Also on display is an artwork created by Tabitha while she was ‘artist in residence’ at 20-21 in 2007 - Bride and Groom uses wedding photographs from couples who married in the former St John’s Church to make a series of memorial objects.
The works in Investment were made possible by funding from the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England, and support from a-n The Artist Information Company.
