Do Porcupines Knit? In Baltimore-Based Artist Lois Hennessey’s World, Yes, They Sure Do!
Created in 2002, “Self-Sufficient is an indicative and much-loved example of Hennessey’s work. In the sculpture, a seated porcupine, nicknamed Willow by the artist, knits themselves into an article of clothing. Knitted material already covers one of its legs and its bottom, and Hennessey depicts the porcupine perpetually working on the next leg of the outfit.” – Everson Museum of Art
