Fabric of Memory

Fabric of Memory is a Liverpool Biennial project by artist LEE Mingwei presented at Tate Liverpool as part of International 06.
Fabric of Memory reveals how personal histories can be captured by objects. Lee invited local residents to lend handmade textiles, such as items of clothing, made by and received from a family member during childhood. Both maker and receiver were asked to provide a history of the item, what memories they had of giving or wearing it and what feelings it now evokes. The Tate Liverpool installation features eighteen items that have been submitted by Liverpool residents.
