Cocooned personal self-protection

Cocooned personal self-protection
False fearless weak
Same feelings indestructible
Front control psychology
Godliness immense, indestructible

Lee Wright

Armour is a project that uses words and stitches to explore the ways we protect ourselves. It is a collaboration with veterans of armed conflict and with people who have lived experience of homelessness. We asked people to describe their personal "armour", physical and mental. Artworks inspired by gambesons, the quilted jackets worn under suits of armour, were made out of rust dyed fabric and embroidered with poems, and other writings.
