+nurse+’s tonal weaving cannot be separated from her textile craftsmanship. Mixer and silk-screen printer, this nurse thinks as much as she bandages, questions as much as she appeases. Musicotherapy and poultice. On cotton or nylon background, she recycles motifs, superimposes images – layer after layer – to the very limit of legibility. On vinyl background, her tonal vanilla slices bang genres together, cover tracks and play dialectic between feathers and lead, between pink and black. In both mediums +nurse+ handles materials with highly inflammable symbolism: printed slogans vs. ill-treated national anthems.
