Recollect, an interactive and unique new work made specifically for ArtHouse Jersey. Alongside a team of local volunteers, closely held and precious memories from real people of advanced years have been borrowed and translated into sensory, interactive experiences. Working in collaboration with Age Concern the artist and volunteers have together built relationships, discovered and translated the real stories of people who call Jersey home.
The exhibition is an invitation to explore how we might find magic in intergenerational friendships, and how there is wonder and connection right within our communities. The exhibition presents recollected memories as wardrobes - some of which welcome us in just by opening the door, or picking up a phone. Others we might need to lean in closer or spend more time with in order to experience them fully.
