MEMORIES - MEZZANINE CABINETS
When we remember we evoke a memory of usually something good, sometimes sad times when we grieve, happy times like weddings or winning at sports or serious times when we have achieved things. memories are evoked by the things we hold, the sounds we hear and the scent of something that draws us back to that one point in time or to a place or person. Everything we do is influenced by the past, what clothes we wear, where we live, even the food we like - they are all influenced by our memories. Our exhibition is a look into the moments of other peoples lives from their favourite dog, school uniform, toys, a wedding invitation and commemorative memorabilia. You can even leave us a memory of something that is special to you.
