Stockpiler Presents In-Situ: Site-Specific Textile Installations at The Hoxton
October 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Stockpiler at The Hoxton during Portland Textile Month for an evening of interactive, site-specific art installations.
• HYUN JUNG JUNG and DASOL KIM’S collaboration “Presence: In Sync:” is a visual translation of the relationship between individuals’ physical world and digital world, using the computer and knit patterns as media. They will present a multifaceted body of work, including a “slouch chair,” made and upholstered by Revive Design, and covered in HYUN JUNG’S machine knit textile, the pattern of which will be determined by the responses generated by the website designed by DASOL.
• STEPHANIE BRACHMANN’S handmade sculptures, home decor products, and drawings evoke laughter, hugs, and thoughts about body weirdness and the human relationship with other life on Earth. STEPHANIE will present a series of large-scale soft sculptures made from reclaimed fabric and filling.
• ELI WEST’S installation will include multiple felted vessels from 6 inches to 4 feet with floral arrangements by local flower farm InClay Co. ELI’S practice embraces the playful, beautifully tactile, and slightly disturbed aspects of his own experience.
• HOLLY MUELLER’S tall, sinuous, free-standing macrame sculptures are inspired by the undulating, ombre-esque formations seen in her recent explorations of rock formations of the Pacific Northwest. For this project, HOLLY has collaborated with LR Design Co. to create three amorphic steel stands for her work.
• ANNABELLE McCALL values labor, especially that which is historically coded as feminine. They work in collaboration with materials, often choosing organic matter like silk and cochineal dye for their bodily associations. ANNABELLE will be showcasing a new body of work involving hand-dyed silk batik, which has been augmented with a laser cutter, bridging ancient techniques and new technology.
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In a little over two years, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized 3 festivals with over 170 events representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing.
PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider directly supporting the next phase of our development. As a direct contributor, your funds will go toward directly towards operational expenses.
