In 2007, Miranda Argyle introduced stitch into her work and subsequently held two site-specific exhibitions at Eleven Spitalfields: From Where I’m Looking Monsieur Lekeux, Part I (2010) and Part II (2015). Previous to this, the former Ballet Rambert soloist Lucy Bethune choreographed a piece for Argyle’s text-based stitching, Heartbeat, in 2009, with a second the following year for I Can Change. In 2015, an installation of Argyle’s work was shown alongside Fine Cell Work (created by prisoners trained in skilled needlework) at Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire. Work concerning Australia’s controversial detention centres on Pacific immigration islands was included in the 249th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2017).
