dc.description.abstract Lace Narratives was a new collection of over seventy textile works exhibited as a solo exhibition at the Damien Minton Gallery Sydney. It also included an artist event and floor talk. The aim of the work was to challenge traditional notions of textile narrative and lace making in order to innovate and create new contemporary lace designs and textile stories. The textile narrative in lace traditionally references the floral as its predominant motif. In the new work the narrative breaks away from traditional floral motifs. While still drawing from the past, it however interprets cultural memory through the concept of 'place' and enquires into the ways in which textiles serve as a story telling media. The work used both traditional and new textile technologies combining unconventional materials, techniques and imagery. Deconstructed old passports and birth certificates, for example, were reworked into new lace constructions, rusted nails were buried in cloth in order to imprint memory and photographic digital transfers were used in the creation of images. Sydney Design Week 2010, whose theme was story telling as a human act, featured the exhibition. The significance of this research has been acknowledged by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne through its acquisition of a selection of work. The work has become part of the National Living Artist Trust Fund that houses a collection of over 350 Australian artists. It is the first textile collection to be acquired by NGV and will be exhibited and toured regularly. en_US
