Project details

In late 2014, Margo started working with a collection of cloth remnants inherited from Roselle Abramowitz, a deceased Canadian-American clothing designer.  Margo's intention was to make composite works from charged fragments originally destined for the female body.  What was originally made to be a covering or clothing of skin is now a reminiscence and abstraction of former function.

Holding Colour was the first solo presentation of this body of work.  Exhibiting at Gallery 200, in Ottawa, it was therefore an opportunity for Margo to test some of the possible relationships shared between these recently made two and three-dimensional elements.  Their installation became an integral part of Margo’s ongoing investigation into the mutability of colour, pattern and form in actual space.
