Friday Night Flicks: Cat Lamora

May is Paper Cutting month on Friday Night Flicks. Since this coming Sunday is Mother’s Day (in North America), it seemed appropriate to show Cat Lamora working on a piece inspired by the words of her grandmother.

 

 

Here’s a bit of the text from the Youtube page:

Lamora says, “In Korean traditions, a lot of our knowledge is passed down from the elders to the children orally. So we’re taught stories; we’re told folk tales. Songs are gifted to us by them. I think when I was younger, I didn’t have as much of an appreciation because I didn’t understand what a wealth of knowledge, what a wealth of inspiration it was — but with age and being away from home, I think I’m finally seeing just how beautiful it is.”

I would recommend spending a few minutes on Lamora’s website this weekend, beginning with the installation Talisman which includes the paper bowl featured in the video.
