ELENA BERRIOLO is a New York based artist. Her previous contributions to the Brooklyn Rail include: "Why didn't Lucio Fontana use my sewing machine?" (August 2012).
When drawing with the sewing machine I am producing a three-dimensional line. The top of the line is on the surface of the paper, while the bottom of the line (not identical to the top) is visible on the underside of the paper.
It is incredibly refreshing to be confronted by a show breathing out of the human dwelling. So many artists, myself included, see their artwork as a place relating to the art-world, or more widely, to our culture.
