About

"366" is an original crocheted sculptural work made of cotton string, glue, steel pins, and antique remnant. The piece measures 9.75"h x 7.75"w x 1.75"d. Bio // Caitlin McCormack received a BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in 2010. She has since exhibited her work both nationally and internationally. Her recent gallery exhibition credits include Modern Eden, San Francisco; Antler Gallery, Portland; Arch Enemy Arts, Philadelphia; Fountain Art Fair, New York; Stephen Romano Gallery, Brooklyn; SCOPE Art Fair, Miami Beach; La Luz de Jesus, Los Angeles; Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Philadelphia; Cotton Candy Machine, Brooklyn, Hamilton Street Gallery, Bound Brook; Sundance Channel Headquarters, New York; and many more. Her recent museum credits include The Morbid Anatomy Museum, Brooklyn and The Mütter Museum, Philadelphia nationally, and Museum Rijswijk, Rijswijk NL internationally. She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA and is currently represented by Paradigm Gallery + Studio. Artist Statement // The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string utilized in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by implementing media and practices inherited from my relatives, both living and deceased, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism's skeletal remains. The material out of which my work is composed acts as an alchemical conduit between the garment and the clothesline; it acknowledges the latter as a symbol of the ancestry and familiar bonds which have greatly informed my work. I wish to give the impression that a garment has disintegrated and reformed itself in the image of a tenacious animal's remains, representative of both the persistence of memory and the significance of cloth and thread in the realm of human experience.
