In her practice Hana Miletić reflects on issues of representation and social reproduction, by making linkages between photography and weaving. The artist models her woven textiles after her photographs that document repairs in public space. Miletić uses the weaving process – which requires considerable time and dedication – as a way to counteract certain economic and social conditions at work, such as acceleration, standardisation and transparency.
