If you believe embroidery is something only your grandma likes, forget it; Julie Cockburn’s
unique approach to stitching will make you fall in love with it too. Even though she started as a sculptor – she still thinks of her work “as very sculptural” –, it’s the thread and needle that have taken over her artistic practice. Finding old photographs on eBay, second-hand shops, and car boot fairs, she turns them into intricately beautiful and colourful pieces. On March 17, you can catch her at Hopstreet Gallery in Brussels, where she’s opening a solo show, but in the meantime, you can get to know her better with this interview.
