Exhibition at Modemuseum Hasselt


The Story of Bivolino
Modemuseum Hasselt
21.05.2016
30.06.2016

As curator of ‘The Story of Bivolino’  at Modemuseum Hasselt,  my objective was to reveal the history of Bivolino and highlight the company’s natural relationship with the textile industry and fashion history of Hasselt.

The exhibition looked into the story of the two brothers Louis and Jacques Byvoet who founded the business in 1954 and their grandfather who had been in the linen trade since 1900. The family run business offered customers an alternative to the classic white shirt and delivered fashionable styles and fabrics. The logo, always featuring the squirrel has been handed down through the generations and arose from the location of the brothers’ workshops close to the sandy pine forests of Hasselt. The company has continually adopted advancing technologies and pioneered the ergonomic measurement system in 1969, allowing each shirt to be individually fitted to the body.
‘The Story of Bivolino’ presented an archive collection of objects, photographs as well as artwork and bespoke shirts from the business and art ranges, accompanied by digital and slide presentations.

MOTHERHOOD AND CREATIVE PRACTICE


In June my  film ‘Grootmoeder’ was screened at Motherhood and Creative Practice: Maternal Structures in Creative Work, an international and interdisciplinary conference that addressed ongoing debates about hospitality, solidarity and encounter as concepts in creative practice, and how they relate to contemporary issues of mothering. Scholars and artists contributed works and presentations which explored the creative embodiment of intergenerational trauma and the complex territory of mother-daughter relationships, and brought into dialogue social, scientific and artistic perspectives.

The conference was organised by Dr. Elena Marchevska and Valerie Walkerdine of London South Bank University. Key note speakers included Professor Bracha L.Ettinger, Marcel Duchamp Chair & Professor of Psychoanalysis and Art at the European Graduate School and Faith Wilding, Professor Emerita of Performance at SAIC; and a Visiting Scholar at the Pembroke Center for Feminist Research at Brown University, Providence, RI. A recorded interview was held with Professor Mary Kelly, Distinguished Professor and Head of the Interdisciplinary Studio Area in the Department of Art at UCLA.  Professor Griselda Pollock, Director of Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory, History, University of Leeds, UK was discussant for the event.
