Inspired by a virtual viewing of the National Nordic Museum's M(other) Tongues, students in the Fiber Arts at Seattle Academy used paint and textiles to create their own works. This exhibition of their work online was made possible with support from ArtsWA.
M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias features the work of Bodhild Brendryen Iglesias and her daughters Janelle and Lisa Iglesias. Born to Norwegian and Dominican immigrant parents, Janelle and Lisa create project-based work under the name “Las Hermanas Iglesias” (Spanish for “The Iglesias Sisters”). The artists grew up in Queens, NY, and now reside on opposite coasts, maintaining independent and collaborative art practices. In addition to working together, they extend their process to the communities they convene, including other members of their family, and in particular, their Norwegian-born mother, Bodhild, an avid knitter. The exhibition is on view at the Museum through January 30, 2022.
