Partly inspired by the literary figure Penelope of Homer’s Odyssey, With One Hand Tied Behind My Back is a new exhibition showing at Calgary’s Esker Foundation.

The installation, created by artist Molly JF Caldwell, features a hand-coloured, 30-foot handwoven tapestry. The piece has been described as a ‘visual articulation of Caldwell’s ongoing research on the complexities and contradictions of labour, care, gender, and sexuality.’
