Donate your Memories to become Art
The Gifts is a new textile installation consisting of small objects donated by the public, which have personal meaning for the Giver and somehow represent some experience, memory or association he/she is prepared to lay to rest. These objects – pieces of personal legacy – are being wrapped and bound by me using fabric and yarn, together with a silent blessing and will become part of a major new exhibition, The Shape of Things at Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery Feb 6 -April 18th next year.
Objects donated so far range from love letters, jewelry and wedding shoes to a CND badge, a pipe, a zip drive, sunglasses and a door handle.
To donate an object that is ‘past its emotional sell-by date’ please download and fill in the pdf on the artists website at http://www.alinahazadeh.com/p-The-ShapeOfTheThings.htm, describing the object and what it means to you .
