Clara Vankerschaver

Clara Vankerschaver graduated as a textile designer in 2010 at KASK – School of Arts, Ghent, where she is currently working as a doctoral researcher on the project Textile as a vessel for tacit knowledge. In this project various craft strategies are explored in search of effective transmission of tacit knowledge. Her work emerges from a persistent inquiry into contemporary textile design practice. In particular, there is a focus on communal and constitutive aspects of design to go beyond the conventional development and production of fabrics, arriving at a more versatile understanding of the forces that generate design.
