From Russia to Manchester; textile samplers as archives. Cottonopolis rethought. Thread can repair, connect and seal our stories of displacement, belonging, migration. We find hints of industry, revolution, movement and displacement in Alice Pitfield’s writings, but they are perhaps best visualised in two textile pieces she produced. Her thread replaces words. The two pieces encapsulate the complexities of a Manchester that it is both domestic and public, international and local, traditional and modern.
