Readings exhibition: stories about memory in textiles.

A selection of works from the 2018 exhibition Stories We Tell Ourselves and the 2017 exhibition Sighting Memory.

This exhibition is a combination of two recent bodies of work examining the relationship between worn and discarded textiles, their emotional associations with memory, and the narratives they generate. Most of the works from 2018 were made during my artist residency at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability. Each piece represents a unique story, imperfectly remembered, translated into ‘pictures’ of moments in time, and readings of relationships.

The interior of a garment holds the intimacy of the individual who wore it. Stains, fading, holes…the poetry of decay: all are important in my contemplation of memory and meaning. The mark of the hand and the imperfections of being human are central to my creative practice.
