Significant Figures – Remembrance through making

25th September – 7th October  2018

SIGNIFICANT FIGURES: remembrance through making, is an exhibition with loss and remembrance at its core, marking the act of remembrance carried out by Elsie, for her boyfriend Cecil, killed in action in 1916.

As custodian of a photograph of Cecil, Mary has inherited Elsie’s story, which she has chosen to tell through the act of making. By taking the facts, figures and numbers of the story and WW1, Mary has made objects that bring the story to life, attempting to highlight significant numbers as well as people. The exhibition features small scale intricate work, complex in the making but simple in concept, to larger more recognisable pieces of tradition basketwork, reflecting the basketry of the period. From cane and willow, to wire, threads and twisted paper, the shared work invites the viewer to contemplate love, loss, remembrance and the passing of time.
