TITLE : Spotlight on Southeast Asian Tie Dyed Textiles
DATE : 28 March 2011 (Monday)
TIME : 10.30 A.M.
VENUE : Galeri Saindera, Level 2
SPEAKER : Dr Gillian Green
“Spotlight on Southeast Asian Tie Dyed Textiles” will start off with a basic description of the techniques and images of a number of textiles from Malaysia, Sumatra and Cambodia patterned in this technique. An outline of her research interest in these particular textiles which arose from a collection of textiles patterned by the plangi and tritik technique with pictorial scenes in the collection of the National Museum in Phnom Penh. The pictorial representations on these textiles, though with a Cambodian vision, seem to relate closely in subject matter to Javanese north coast batik cloth of the same era – late 19th/early 20th C. Others in this collection have geometric, non-pictorial patterns which relate to those on Sumatran plangi/tritik patterned textiles. These relationships are explored.
