Agnes Richter’s embroidered shirt

This is the blouse that I have used for inspiration for my pieces in the exhibition alongside the Prinzhorn collection. It was made by Agnes Richter from her strait jacket. She embroidered her thoughts and feelings on to it but most of it is now illegible. I find it such a powerful piece of work, but one of beauty too.
