A post feminist collaborative artist specialising in telling hidden human stories through textiles and museum collections. Working with felt, film and original textiles to create sculpture and installations that uncover personal stories that have been lost or buried, Jan Bee’s work challenges the mundanity and monotony of domestic life reflected in the handwork of generations of women.
