Artist Kate Scardifield during her research visit to the Scottish Borders, as part of the 'Archival Enactments – New Constellations' project. This first part of her vsist took place between 27th June- 1st July and she visited various archives, artiists, textile facilities, creatives and museums.
At Heriot Watt University she viewed parts of the Textile Collection with Helen Taylor, Archivist. Items views included historic festival banners and local Tweed and tarten samples.

Kate Scardifield is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Sydney. Her practice can be likened to a process of anatomical enquiry; mining history for intersecting systems and patterns that culminate in re-imaginings of the body, site and space. Scardifield’s works traverse sculpture, installation, textiles, video and painting, often incorporating repetitious iconography and labour intensive techniques. Relationships between the spectacle, the macabre and the divine, in their broadest form, operate as cornerstones in her practice
