Alice Anderson: Memory Movement Memory Objects
22nd July-18th October 2015
Over 100 works by acclaimed artist Alice Anderson will be displayed at Wellcome Collection from this July until October 2015. Anderson’s sculptures are created by entirely mummifying objects in copper thread, thus create glistening landscapes of beautiful, uncanny and transformed objects. Each piece is an exploration and act of memory.
The exhibition also features 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.
