Another Country

Another Country is a cycle of thirteen quilts made out of matchbooks whose patterns are inspired by those used in the Underground Railroad quilts.  Each quilt is composed of 2800 hand-sewn matchbooks and contains visual symbolism relating to different aspects of systemic racism and/or white supremacy. Begun in 2016, the project was conceived out of a frustration with the continued killing of black and brown people by law enforcement with almost unanimous impunity.  The logos on the matchbooks depict businesses or towns where these tragedies occurred.  It is a collaboration of artists David Anthone and Ron Norsworthy.
