Item Type:

Creators: Hoette, Ruby
Abstract or Description:

This iteration of Patternmapping manifested as a live installation commissioned by The Community, a Paris-based art/design collective.

Residents of the Nottingham area were invited to visit the gallery to meet Ruby Hoette, Juliette Kristensen and Karen Harrigan together with an item of their clothing. This garment was photographed, its narrative as articulated by the participant was recorded and its various locations, from where it was purchased, to memorable occasions it was worn to, were live recorded on a map. As the story of the garment is recorded, it was also reverse pattern-cut by Karen Harrigan becoming part of the gallery display and growing archive.

In this way, the installation documented local residents’ clothing styles and uniforms as ‘landmarks’ and captured each one through the production of its pattern in the gallery space.
