Abstract

An invited solo exhibition at The Dutch TextielMuseum Tilburg, noted for its focus on new and experimental textile technologies, ‘Transmutations’ comprised four installations of thirty textiles and experimental samples case and demonstrated the first major outcomes of the Research Futures Project Starszakowna established in 2001 (see above). Exploiting inherent tensions between translucent, glazed digital image, synchronous 3-dimensional image and active erosions of oxidisation media to create a physical continuum of interventions, each installation addresses cultural identity and dislocation within environments subject to socio-political, chronological and semiotic change. For example, ’Walls of Ozymandias’ addresses cultural dislocation, reflected in deconstructed, once-intimate domestic interiors rude- rendered to a public gaze, cultural markers defaced, ideologies fled; the universal traces of diaspora. ‘Writings’ explores historical use of walls as substrate and the impact of chronological and semiotic change on public texts and cultural markers, including political posters, signage and graffiti. ‘Transmutations’ was accompanied by Masterclasses and lecture and featured in the resulting monograph Portfolio Collection: Norma Starszakowna, published Telos Art Publishing 2005, ISBN 1-90201595-9. and in several publications identified in output 3. Several earlier research outcomes were exhibited in ‘Cheongju International Biennale’, Korea 2002; ‘Artists at Work: New Technologies, Museo del Tessuto, Prato/Florence 2003, ISBN 88-7481-531-0 and ‘Vision in Textiles’, Izmir State Museum of Art’, Turkey 2005 ISBN 975-441-223-5. The research was also subsequently presented to industry and conferences, including AUTEX, Marmara University, Istanbul 2005; Design and Technology, University of the Arts Philadelphia, USA 2004 ; ITCDC Conference, University of Zagreb, Croatia 2004; Suave 2: Innovation in Textiles, Asociacion de Creadores Textiles de Madrid, Spain 2006 (sponsored by Centro de Artesania y Deseno) and the EU funded Innovation in Crafts: New Challenges for a New Century, Valencia, Spain 2006 (sponsored by EU /Ministry for Industry/ Spanish Foundation for Innovation in Crafts).
