Liza Johansson - Minnen i det textila

My work is an exploration into textile memories and the sense of tactile seeing linked to textiles. It's about a love and a fascination for the material, the seam, the fold and the patterns as bearer of memories and stories.

I collect memories. My process is a practice of continuous searching, looking, scouring photo albums. Pictures taken from my personal sphere where the choice becomes intuitive, something is triggered in me. Looking for textile materials in pictures where a sense of tactile memory emerges. I have always been fascinated by photographs. There lies a curiosity in placing yourself in the past, to relive the images and trying to understand what is happening. There is a relationship between photography and textile. What links them is contact. An imprint of a memory, a moment in time. There is so much I can make use of in the image. I can preserve what I see. The memory of the wrinkle, the fold, how the textile material appears against the body. The meeting between people and textiles. Those precious few seconds, a fleeting observation.
