Voices: Conversations with My Others

This textile work explores my experience of living with a dissociative disorder.  Using the traditional patchwork technique of English Paper Piecing, shapes are formed by sewing the cotton over the paper and tacking it down.  Each colour represents a different part and the papers used depict aspects of that part.

Voices: Hidden and Lost, 2024 Calico, paper and thread. 73 cm x 115cm

Voices: Hidden and Lost

This work was made as part of an Exhibition at the Museum of English Rural Life in Reading.  Considering their collection and a theme of absence, this work considers how stories within museums maybe missing the voices and stories of hidden communities and how some narratives have been lost for ever.
