Transfiguration will be part of an upcoming exhibition titled "Domestic Matters: The Uncommon Apron".

Transfiguration explores the idea that the apron is not just a singular piece of clothing but rather representative of a full identity. This identity extends beyond simply using an apron for the purpose of cooking or working or creating and considers that those acts are part of the whole of someone who is a caretaker. This caretaker expresses their affection and concern through thoughts, emotions, and actions. The whole person, body and mind, are employed in this activity.
