Shelf Lives :
...your cabinet of daily analogue backups.
Many of us live on top of a mountain of stuff, with our heads in a cloud of information. This makes it harder to find the ‘keepers’, the objects that really matter.
Shelf Lives sees ‘keeper’ objects as analogue storage devices for memories, ideas and events. This show unpacks our cabinet of keepers so we can see and share them more clearly.
Shelf Lives is an art event by Doug Selway presented from 27 April to 25 June 2015 at Jaywick Martello Tower, Essex, CO15 2LF
It begins with Doug Selway leading Artist in Residence activities at Jaywick Martello Tower for 4 weeks from 27 April. These include open access activities and workshops.
The main event, a performance and film screening is during May Bank Holiday Weekend 23 – 25 May 2015
Starting with The Big Night at the Tower on Sat 23 May 18.30 -21.00
A whole floor of new paintings, small sculptures and box installations, live performances, film, and more than a few surprises. It’s the only opportunity to see all the different aspects of the work together.
