Gather is an art practice through which we seek to make whole what has been broken, finding agency and community through acts of repair. Each installation of Gather responds differently, our attempt to approach these same questions in a new context.


In the first iteration of Gather we transformed the gallery into a workshop to fix broken household items brought in by the community.

In the second iteration of Gather, we reshuffle and resort the materials left over from the first iteration, offering them for viewers to become active participants, to take some things home right here and now and do their own making.
