A series of poetic tapestry collage works  based on Levin’s insights into the histories of  some of Elsewhere’s textile collection.  The series incorporates both sales tags and the selvage edges of the fabrics to draw attention to these histories.  It has been placed over Grant Heap’s Quilts from 2008 on the 2nd floor of the museum, as a way to extend a conversation between the two artists who both live and work in Toronto, Canada.
