Matrilineal: Family History and Jakkai’s Textile works — Talk by John Clark

13 January 2024


Family Hisotry and Jakkai Siributr’s Textile works
Talk by Prof John Clark and a conversation with Jakkai Siributr
Moderated by Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani

Departing from the themes explored in the exhibition, that is, the awareness of the impermanence of life, and the importance to revisit the past in order to maintain the memory of our loved once in the face of history, this talk looks at Siributr’s practice and ongoing involvement with embroidery, stitching and sawing to address contemporary social issues, as well as his family’s history and legacy. In particular, Prof John Clark will expand on Sirbutr’s textile education in the USA, and the relevance of his practice in Thailand from his earlier works to Matrilineal.
