Random acts of kindness
Ana Maria Hernando's textiles investigate the transparent acts of humanity that hold our lives and communities together
'I find transparent acts everywhere. My most pressing image would be that of women embroidering tablecloths, washing, ironing. Later these embroidered beauties are stained, and covered with food. Hours of work have become the background. these acts of transparent love that makes no sense, and have no place in accounting books, inspire me.'
