Looking back

Friday, 22 February 2019


Dissections deconstructing, questioning. Pulling apart to consider what garment may be. What can occur in this space between structure and the body? Varied connections to body, place and time to make narratives … sometimes delicate, fragmented and whimsical, sometimes graphic and strong, Looking back shows the diversity and flexibility encouraged by the ECU Fashion program, equipping our graduates to make their own meaning and place as they head out into the world.

Looking back brings together work made by a selection of graduates from the ECU fashion major with a particular focus on creating a dialogue between the work they made as students and what they are producing now. Our graduates have been invited to consider how their early work, developed around particular interests and formal approaches, has informed and been reformed and adjusted within the professional world for a commercial or creative space of production.

The transition from a ‘safe’ space at university, where one can take creative risks, to the ‘real world’ where the work is formed or adjusted depending on the context, is a process of negotiation. This exhibition remarks how independent and self-directed this creative group is, each making strong choices about how they have chosen to approach their work as they reflect on the relationship between then and now.

Looking back is a great chance to reconsider the subjects our graduates have worked with, when they were students, and then see how they have evolved through time and creative practice.
