The Texture of Memory: T-Collective


T-Collective, The Texture of Memory, MFEG, 2023

T-collective is four mature-age artists –– Simon Crosbie, Mig Dann, Yiwon Park, Jude Worters –– whose work is based on lived experience of personal trauma. The artists connected as PhD candidates in the School of Art at RMIT University. As a collective they bring four distinct perspectives of agency and resilience to this subject.

Working with diverse media, the artists explore the mutability and complexity of memory and the inherent problems in interpreting childhood experience by negotiating multiple trajectories through a visual language of trauma.

The Texture of Memory
creates a dialogue around this theme that departs from the perception that trauma-informed art is purely about catharsis and isolates the artist as a victim. As such, the exhibition creates ground from which emotion and feeling may flow, acting as the impetus for new discourse on this topic.
