An exploration of the connections between remembering and the senses, performance and painting, live and the archived.
The installation offered opportunities to recall early memories of processing the things we see, sense, taste, smell and hear, with large scale paintings made using a dynamic mix of materials: Brasso, calamine lotion and Windowlene - products vividly evoking the artist’s childhood.
A changing display of photographs, film, writing, and a relaxing viewing space all invited visitors to consider their own experiences of memory and creativity.
The exhibition was the culmination of The Artworks Fellowship – The Organisational Perspective.
