“The point isn’t to know what you are doing the point is to have an experience doing something”
- Kiki Smith
Neata’s practice describes the ephemeral nature of our existence. In the short span of our lives, we must bear responsibility for all our actions, lies and truths, and the impulses that we succumb to. This is a responsibility we carry towards ourselves, and must shoulder the consequences alone. For when we finally perish, our clothes and material possessions are all that is left behind for others to remember and judge us by. Eventually, their memories will also fade. She uses textiles as her medium to remind viewers of the symbols of our existence.
