Tikar as verb: in conversation: Yee I-Lann and Lucy Davis

Lucy Davis, I-Lann Yee

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    This conversation between Bornean artist Yee I-Lann and Lucy Davis (July 2020), weaves through a series of collaborative
    art projects that have been initiated by Yee and which are situated in and through practices of tikar (woven mat) making.
    The conversation resonates therefore, with topical themes pertaining to ecologies, materialities, collaborative practices,
    decolonisation and politics of display of vernacular craft in contemporary art contexts. Perhaps most importantly, this
    conversation also includes a series of thick descriptions; anecdotes and precious primary material pertaining to the multiple
    historic and contemporary worlds that might be hosted by the tikar.
