Knit and Purl: Maritime Tales Through Jumpers


Exhibition by Hannah Ross. Textile objects - especially the Gansey jumper - have a strong connection with temporal narrative. They embody a language of their own and can narrate a tale. Knitting itself is a ritual laden with symbolism. Often, a jumper is knitted by a parental figure and passed through the family’s history. It travels with the wearer narrating its life. This exhibitions explores how the jumper can be a tangible connection with family but also with identity and place.
