The Canadian Survival Apron by Penelope Thompson
This is an art project I contributed to an international touring exhibition of artwork based on aprons - called the "Provincial Spirit Apron Exhibition".
I made the apron as a humorous response to my first experience of challenges of the "wilds" of British Columbia, Canada in February 2006.
The apron includes everything one would need to survive a Canadian winter - including fishing tackle, a hunting knife, a bottle of brandy and of course, the stash tin and matches!
I couldn't resist doing a little performance wearing the apron in the gallery.
See the video below. It may take a little while to download.
