CARE, REPAIR & HEALING
16 Jun – 25 Sep 2022
Showcasing diverse examples of creative reuse, from historical samples of the
Japanese art of Kintsugi and Boro, which embrace upcycling and repurposing, to
works from contemporary artists who put repair at the heart of their practice,
Eternally Yours explores the unexpectedly hopeful and healing stories that repair
reveals. In light of the recent global pandemic, the exhibition seeks to unpack how
‘repair’ can guide both our individual and collective healing.
Bringing together everything from textiles and ceramics to furniture, Eternally Yours
reflects upon the hope and healing which can be found in the memories and stories
that everyday objects hold in our lives. Celebrating the history and emotional value
of the items we hold on to, rather than discard, the exhibition highlights works from
a broad range of creatives, including textile artists Celia Pym, Angela Maddock and
Georgina Maxim , designers Studio Propolis, artist and researcher Ellen Sampson and
maker Peter Marigold.
