Marie Watt, Singing Everything:  Crescendo from the Whitney Museum Writing Circle Series.

Singing Everything: Crescendo (Sustained Note), 2023
Reclaimed wool blankets, tin jingles, embroidery floss, and thread
106 x 146 inches

This Sewing Circle piece was initiated at communal gatherings at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2022. Watt’s sewing circles are cross generational, multicultural gatherings that she has organized for over a decade. Inspired by poet laurate Joy Harjo’s poem Singing Everything, Watt collects words from the participants with the prompt, “what do you want to sing a song for in this moment?” The words are then embroidered on blanket pieces and fabric and adorned with bugle beads. Each panel is patterned in a way that stays true to the original hand. She thinks of handwriting as an extension of the cadence of one’s voice and, in this project, it becomes part of a larger chorus. By composing large-scale wall works from these pieces of fabric, Watt creates collaborative artworks that interweave many individual handwritings, touches, and the stories that were exchanged in a shared space.
