unwanted memory bankActivities
The exhibition Zadie Xa: The Conch, Sea Urchin and Brass Bell is accompanied by an exciting programme of events and activities for children and adults. Pump House Gallery’s InHouse Project Space presents ‘Unwanted Memory Bank’ – a new piece of work by artist Ania Bas to complement Zadie Xa’s exhibition in the gallery. This project invites visitors to consider the value we attach to objects and memories. Inspired by objects around the Project Space, we challenge you to dig into your bag to find unwanted things from which to make a sculpture, or make drawings of things you don’t need or want anymore. Join Ania Bas for free drop-in family workshops throughout August and September to experiment with writing, drawing and publishing. This is a fun and interactive way for families to creatively explore their unwanted belongings and memories. Upcoming family workshops Sundays 6 August, 20 August, 3 September, 17 September, with a final event and workshop on 24 September. About the artist Ania Bas is an artist working across text, performance, publishing and social engagement to create situations that support dialogue and exchange, as well as explore and question existing frameworks of participation. She is interested in the ways that objects and narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people. Drop-in workshops for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
