Memory Movement Memory Objects
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.
