Fragmented Forlorn explores the emotional suffering of loss through photographs and meaningful textiles. The collection uncovers the personal lived experience and emotional suffering associated with loss, specifically of family and loved ones; moments of loss that occurred during Melbourne lockdown in 2020, without the opportunity for goodbyes or physically being able to pay respects. Overwhelming feelings of suffocation and emptiness are captured through the collection’s nostalgic material palette and technical handwork, formed into contemporary silhouettes.
