CLOTH & MEMORY {2} - SEMINARS The two Seminars will be led by the Cloth & Memory Team and some of the artists from the exhibition. We hope that delegates will engage with the discussion through the contribution of their own ideas and responses to the theme and we welcome everyone - from those who have knowledge of the subject to those for whom this is a new discovery.    > Seminar One Report.    > Seminar Two Report. SEMINAR ONE September 13th 1.30-4pm - Cloth, memory and touch Metaphors of memory are overwhelmingly physical: ....we use verbs such as impress, burn and imprint to describe the processes by which memories are formed. 1 Of all the materials that accompany us through our lives, cloth is the one that most absorbs and retains the traces of our passing. Rips, stains and mendings: all are records of the touch of the body and the hand. Several of the artists in Cloth & Memory {2} have developed their work in response to the potent narrative of cloth, memory and touch. In this Seminar we will discuss works in the exhibition and the work of other relevant artists. 1 Charles Ferneyhough (2012). Pieces of Light London.

In this Seminar we will look at the approaches to what we remember and how we remember, as developed by artists in the exhibition We will discuss which works are of memory and which are works on memory: which embody memory and which describe memory, and the importance of cloth in the translation process. 2 Charles Ferneyhough (2012).
