Catch hangs in swags from a ceiling or skylight, pooling on the floor below. Its baroque form is at odds with the contemporary materiality of the slick synthetic leather and the excessive repetition of a delicate circular vine pattern further distances the work from the 15th century embroidered bodice that inspired it.
