Mnēmonikos Oikogéneias (A Family Remembered)

Marianne Hulsbosch offered a deeply personal exploration of family and memory supported by a number of her mnemonic textile sculptures, each one representing a family member. In the creation of these intriguing box-like structures, Marianne used textiles from the family scrap basket, embellished with embroidery, beads, appliqué etc. to “reveal memories that facilitate exploration of ancestral patterns of life”.

Sadly, these works are all that remain of a much larger installation previously exhibited in Sydney, the Netherlands and the US (1995). Many pieces went missing en route from the US to Sydney and thousands of hours of painstaking work were lost and so it was a privilege to be invited to touch, hold and even reconstruct the remaining works to invoke our own personal memories of family.
