In February 2013, Susie Vickery and Nika Feldman worked with 10 women from Dharavi to applique slogans against rape on old sarees. These beautiful sarees were then worn by the women who made them for a photoshoot and a fashion show.
These sarees are collectively christened Provoke/Protect and they are travelling to the Kala Ghoda Festival 2014 this February.
We are thinking of an installation design for these sarees and we have approached the basket weavers near Mahim station to try out a design. Can’t wait to see what they are going to come up with.
