Title: Family Connections
Exhibited in: The Alternative Archive – Only Hospital For Miles Miles exhibition at the Lake Grace Regional Artspace
Media/Materials: tea dyed cotton fabric and gauze, photographic transfers, thread
I was inspired to do this work by photos of my Aunty who started work at the AIM in the early 1930s before doing her nursing in Fremantle, then returning for a short time. My family have also had connections with the hospital from its beginning. I have enjoyed the process of going through family photos, talking to and seeing the other families involved.
