Memory Movement Memory Objects

Spring 2015

Postponed until spring 2015

Over 100 works by acclaimed artist Alice Anderson will be displayed at Wellcome Collection. Anderson’s sculptures entirely mummified in copper thread will create glistening landscapes of beautiful, uncanny and transformed objects. Each piece is an exploration and act of memory.

The exhibition will also feature an immersive experience ‘the Factory’ extending the creative process of the artist’s studio into the gallery. Visitors will be able to spend time mummifying a 1967 Ford Mustang and other smaller objects with copper wire, creating an atmosphere that is at once meditative and communal.

Both the making and display of works interrogate how we create, recall, transform and seal the past and imagine the future.
