Tracey Clement, ‘Dog’ (detail), 2010, embroidery on Irish linen, framed 350 x 350mm.

1 man + 1 woman = 1 child (me).

1+1=1 is an acknowledgment of the contribution my parents made to my character and artistic practice.

The starting point of this solo exhibition is series of drawing collaborations I made with my Father when I was a child: he drew, I scribbled with crayons.

In 1+1+=1, I have taken these drawings and reinterpreted them in embroideries (one of the several traditional “women’s work” skills handed down to me by my Mother) and digital prints.

I have also animated three of the drawings using very simple techniques including the construction of handmade flip-books and praxinoscopes.

Watch videos of the praxinoscopes here.
