Artist’s Statement
Zannah Cooper is a textile artist and designer. Her work explores cultural identity through the layering of patterns, symbols and materials from across parts of the world. Zannah’s recent work makes use of national flags, with embroidery, patchwork, lace and vintage fabrics.

An interest in the material remnants that make up cultural environments, as well as personal stories has fed into her creative practice. Whilst collecting materials with unique cultural and visual biographies, such as potato sacks from Bolivia, the notion of a palimpsest came to play in her work.
