EMBODYING FAMILY HERITAGE: Synopsis For this project, each student was required to ‘inherit’, wear and ‘embody’ dress/shirt/pants of their father/mother/grandfather/grandmother. Each student was also required to collect pertinent verbal data about his/her chosen artifact other than to present it in a catwalk. Students were also encouraged to embody the ‘personality’ of the original owner of the artifact. In doing so, students were encouraged to engage with the notions of culture, art/design and heritage in a more personal and inclusive manner. They were also asked to critically examine their cultural selves as well as family inheritance that can be passed on from one generation to the next. Indirectly, this project may also be a bridge for ‘generational cultural gap’ as well as a means to instill the spirit of ‘unconditional love’ that is intrinsic in the relationship between parents/their children. The notion of cultural identity is thus simultaneously particularised (personalised) as well as universalised.

LIOW HENG YEE 111756 The shirt belongs to my father and the pants belongs to my mother, both of them ( the clothes ) have the same age as mine. As what my mother told me, these clothes are purchased during their wedding 1st anniversary, and it's a present for my mother, from father, vice verse. It is a very sweet memories for my parents, that's the reason why are they still keeping this for years even though these clothes couldn't suit them anymore. ( They're very big size nowadays. Hah! )Personally I love the pants very much and I found it's very interesting and unique especially the roses print on the pants. Most importantly, it was my mother's favorite pants at her age.

This Samfu was once wore by my grandmother from my father side, when she was in her teens, around 1930s. She was to be married to a rubber tapper in Johor (my late grandfather), so she sew a few set of this kind of Samfu by herself one week before her wedding (both families side were poor then & couldn't afford a grand wedding, so no red silk Chinese wedding dress like those old Chinese movies). This particular Samfu served as her wedding dress (hard to believe, but true), & she continued to wear the rest of the same set of samfu as everyday clothing because she said that it was comfortable, & easy to wash.
