    The Lost Ones
    Embroidery thread dyed with menstrual blood on fabric and embroidery hoop

    Nichole Speciale

    San Diego, United States

    More info
    The Lost Ones is a group of 9 small hoops embroidered with white embroidery thread dyed with menstrual blood. The project seeks to bring attention to the gendered practice of embroidery and the shaming of the female body. Thread has for many decades has been associated with feminine home craft, and has often been disregarded as a legitimate art making medium. In its simplest interpretation, thread is a continuous line. Thread like the womb is absorptive; it reflects its environment. It creates new forms from its own tissue. The Lost Ones connects the womb to this gendered material, allowing the thread to act as a conduit for the womb’s unused material. The project, on a more social level, works to expose the artist’s own female body, revealing an otherwise obscured material that is lessened to that of excrement, even though it is a material responsible for creation of life. The depicted fetus shapes serve as reminders for the potential held in the menses.

    Renowned kingdom. The empire. The industry. Shah.

    Oil ships create waves on their ocean journey home.

    They share economy along rivers of oil, which break to the surface from where Messiah rests. They diverge into streams. Along the banks heads bow, heads clash to beg the sun to set in the East. Oil is curse to the Middle East and to the world.

    Rebels speaks in harsh, urgent voices of Justice to a sympathetic, infidel sect.

    Bombs fall like drops of bullets from the sky, so they migrate towards a stormy life.

    My people marched a several hour's journey by bus. Your people walk, swim, they board boats and crowd stolen miles in the same current.

    Well, no matter, they steal their culture in return, and vomit their jobs - so that we are all in debt.
