Alice Anderson: Memory Movement Memory Objects

“The exhibition will also feature an immersive experience ‘the Studio’ extending the creative process of the artist’s practice into the gallery. Visitors will be able to spend time mummifying a 1967 Ford Mustang and other smaller objects with copper wire, creating an atmosphere that is at once meditative and communal.”

The first thing that strikes you about this exhibition is the setting – black backgrounds and spotlights set off the copper wire which makes it look like giants hair. The wires cover everyday objects in a cocoon, so that banal things found in the workshop take on the appearance of sacred objects.
Over time the wrapped objects will distort with the pressure of the wires, this will interesting to see at a future date.
