Title: Loughborough Jewels: interactive exhibition to imbue memory with jewellery
Authors: Bernabei, Roberta
Keywords: Jewellery and memory
SLS in jewellery
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: Audience will be invited to interact with a wall installation. The latter will be composed by 50 brooches made with a 3D printer with a missing part. As the exhibition progresses, the original installation will be populated by a memory/memorial wall. In fact, the author of the exhibition will then add each participant’s memory in the missing part of the brooch. The visual manifestation of memories will be complemented by a digital archive of stories linked with memories related to Loughborough Town. The latter will be created with the application of the story telling practice and a questionnaire in order to gather qualitative and quantitative data. The end result will culminate in a digital archive of the 50 brooches with audience memories supported by findings of the research.
Description: Participatory project, LU Arts Market Town, Loughborough Jewels, 20th-30th January. Author's description: "Radar, LU Art's contemporary arts programme, in conjunction with Charnwood Arts, has invited architects, artists and designers to develop projects that re-imagine the future of Loughborough's town centre. To deliver the Market Town project, Radar and LU Arts are working with their two delivery partners, Charnwood Arts and Love Loughborough. My proposal has been approved as it will involve the local community memories of the town. Each participant will be part of an interview and discussion recorded with the story telling practice. The exhibition space will show 50 empty 3D printed brooches and one by one they will be filled with people’s images of the University market town. My project is involved in trigger memories linked with the town in order to sollecitate the audience to develop work that re-imagines the town as a destination for "socialising, culture, health, well-being, creativity and learning.." - (The Portas Review, 2011), while seeking new ways to rethink and activate local economies. Alongside Market Town commissions, Radar is running a programme of regular workshops and seminars, in relation to my project I will offer two workshops open to children and families to elaborate memories and make wearable objects out of them."
