Memory Skirt (Material Memory)

Year: 2008

Origin: Scarborough

Donated By: Carol Eves

Carol crafted this memory-filled skirt during her theatre studies. It  became a pivotal element to an autobiographical performance and was sewn for the occasion. Each appliqued patch encapsulates a memory— scraps from her maternity dress, a cherished gift cushion, a bathroom blind from her first home, a tiny waistcoat for her son, a snippet from a client’s wedding dress, and more, each with a unique story.
