Japanese Art Form That Aids in Our Recovery

Untitled (Skeleton), 2022, textile artwork by Yuko Edwards.

The skeleton in question is a patchwork of beige bones and flesh with flashes of crimson, sewn together with fabric and thread.

You can see the stitches if you look near enough. Others are sloppy and uneven, leaving puckers in the synthetic suede, while some are small, even, and systematic. A video titled “On Skin” is playing nearby.

Needles glint and dive into this animation.

This skeleton was pieced together in several workshops.

Many of those who create it think back to times when they, too, were stitched up as they work.

They talk about the wounds that have been left behind. Sutures are used to repair an open wound.

Evidence of the stitches’ existence on the skin persists even after they are removed or disintegrate.

The scars you’re left with—whether they’re faint ridges, pink sheens, creases, dips, or nubs of tissue—will always be a reminder of how far you’ve come in terms of your physical health. Being “on the mend” isn’t a meaningless expression.
