A fine art installation by Alex Peckham combining sculpture, narrative, sound and light to explore life, death and the infinite.
1 - 23 July
Open Wed – Sun 11 am – 5 pm
Memoria is a fine art installation concerned with the finite nature, duration and experience of life. In the work, participants are invited to explore a space that is in one sense the deconstructed bedroom of a young woman. However, the environment contains surreal sculptural works and aspects reminiscent of a forest or nature - it is neither an interior nor an exterior. The work embodies a dream-like quality with curious incongruous elements to be experienced and discovered. Memoria combines sculpture with spoken and written narrative, dynamic sound and light.
The work asks us to reconsider what is truly important in our own lives and how we attribute value to situations, people and our surroundings. Memoria also seeks to encourage more structured dialogue around mortality through a live discussion event that accompanies the installation. In addition, a digital legacy of the artwork will be provided with audio and visual elements that may be accessed both during and after the exhibition.
