Comfort

11th January to 12th March

Detail of a quilt with square representing breasts, each embroidered and embellished in different ways

Comfort will present a Breast Quilt made by 180 women and teenage girls in workshops across the UK, including Cancer Support groups, Homeless Day Centres, 3 Schools, a Trans Clinic, Poland’s Syndrome support, Women’s Groups, Art students and two workshops hosted by Glasgow Women’s Library.

The artwork explores the subject of breasts, from prepubescent hopes and dreams to the joys and frustrations of breastfeeding. From the realities of old age to sexualisation, to operations for health and transgender women’s feminisation. These are women’s stories of embarrassment, pleasure, pain, joy and comfort.
