My Tracy Island

Exhibition at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, Lancashire – Summer 2011

During the preparation for this exhibition I used objects from childhood along with the memories that I attached to them. i photographed abstracts of these objects and used poetic narrative to engage the audience.

The exhibition asked the audience to question what they remembered from their own past and why. The response, although strong and varied, was not tangible. The whole project highlighted the need to engage with the audience and not simply present them with imagery.

Asking the audience to question why?
