    Seven Sisters

    08 Oct 2021 – 27 Nov 2021

    Seven Sisters features artist Rachel M. Thornton’s series of large, embroidered cyanotypes and an accompanying book, all of which explore embodied connections to the cosmos highlighted in the myth of the Pleiades, also known as the Seven Sisters. The works in Seven Sisters propose alternative theories for the development of the observable cosmos based on understanding the night sky through touch. Combining newly-imagined and pre-existing stars, galaxies and constellations, these works create a new arrangement of the cosmos which considers our bodily relationship to galactic beings of unfathomable scales at incomprehensible distances. Seven Sisters combines subjective information like stories, myths, and personal connections to the stars with scientific, fact-based reasoning about the cosmos to suggest new ways of rationalizing the world around us.
