hannah gartside – between ourselves (memory quilt)


Melbourne, VIC

“Between Ourselves encompasses a handmade quilt and clothing, captured in a series of photographs of my sister Imogen and I. The pieces use recycled Liberty print fabrics from our late grandma Peggy's clothing, our mum Melanie's nighties, and two sets of curtains from our home in London. Our family moved to Australia when I was six. I made this work in Brisbane as a talisman and a comfort blanket, before moving to Melbourne to pursue art and crafting. I've always had a very strong affinity with fabric. In my practice, I tell stories through making.”
