Abstract [en]

Through my personal viewpoint as a textile designer, this paper explores my thoughts of history and archive as narrative, textile as body and print as memory. My methods center around printed textiles and its potential to explore themes and further methods of layering, memory and narrative. Through experimenting with techniques including devoré, screen, block and stencil printing, I aim to highlight and visualise a fragility in our recording of history. As Victoria Browne quotes in ‘Feminism, time, and nonlinear history’, “all history takes place in the present, as we make and remake stories about the past to enable a particular present to gain legitimacy.”. In the case of the project, the history is within printed textiles and for the me the story is not of a particular person but of a collective language of artists who use shape, layer and colour as a tool to communicate and understand their personal world.
