“Special attention was paid to the chain of production in the exhibition. Photo and video documentation follow Burks’ designs from their inception on draftpaper straight through to the production of a physical object. The inclusion of this material, along with the visibility of the Sengalese craftspeople actually working in the museum, provided commentary on specificity in a global age. Confronted with a transparent take on the realities of manufacturing - one of open and attentive collaboration - the audience might see the possibility of becoming more interested in the processes that shape what they buy.”
