For her most recent series, ‘memory cloth’, Klaas collects scraps of found or used fabric and pieces them together into fragile quilt like objects that reference both pillows and paintings. Allowing only additive or mending processes (no cutting or tearing), she responds to a sense of what the scraps would like to be and to which other pieces they would like to be connected. In the same sense that clothing covers the vulnerability of human nakedness while also presenting an identity of the wearer, the shapes of fabric in the ‘memory cloth’ pieces are present in their own identities, showing evidence of wear and absorption. ‘Memory cloth’ was hosted on Vignettes’ instagram gallery, “Vignettes Weekender” June 3-5, investigating Instagram's ability to record a temporal space by documenting the quilts in her home alongside her bed linens, carpets, and other intimate surroundings.
