- Statement: Kanavice points out a very significant gender inequality (problem). Varying from region to region, even village to village, Kanavice motifs included problems that women could not even talk about. Being subjected to social pressure and having no right to talk, the women used Kanavice as a tool for expression for centuries. They expressed themselves onto motifs and therefore each motif corresponded to a different problem or feeling. The artist reinterprets the Kanavice Embroidery & stylized flowers creating her story by using this traditional expression way for Kanavice Series.
