dc.description.abstract The Tamworth Textile Biennial is one of Australia’s most respected and high profile national textile survey exhibitions. Momentum: 18th TTB was curated by Valerie Kirk, Head of Textiles, Australian National University. 25 exhibitors from across Australia were selected from approximately 200 applicants. Knitting is a form of constructed textiles that has the capacity to be manipulated and moulded into 2D and 3D forms. My current research investigates the relationship of knitting as a form of second skin to the human body. My work primarily uses knitting as a medium to create forms that wrap, cocoon and, in some circumstances, distort the human body. Second Skin: Armsling, Gloves, Muff and Neck Pods explores the place of knitting in a fashion context. It looks beyond traditional conventions of the form, using knitting as a medium to create ‘body pieces’. Through focussing on the types of shapes and silhouettes that can be worn on the body, ‘Second Skin’ extends current applications and understandings of knitting in a contemporary fashion context. The work also investigates the space between the body and the garment, an ongoing area of investigation in contemporary fashion instigated by the innovations of Japanese fashion designers in the 1980s. The research contributes to the investigation of the relationship of aesthetic and material dimensions of contemporary textile practice. The exhibition toured extensively to key regional galleries within Australia from November 2008 until December 2010.
