If one person held fond memories of mine, just because they are no longer here , does that mean i can not create new memories involving them.
I will be taking out items of clothing, belonging to my grandfather and hanging them in settings which is un familiar to me.
Firstly, these places will be derelict, moving into outdoor settings, then into public spaces.
These will hang next to a written memory I have with him, along side the piece of clothing and photo. I will allow the public to walk up, touch, see and read my memory. documenting the interaction along the way.
He would laugh if he knew what I was doing, and ask me why im not still painting ‘those lovely paintings’ any more.
