The Souvenir Collection

Seaside Twist

2018

For the ‘Collect’ exhibition at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery,  Sinéid Codd was drawn to a tiny 19th century carnelian souvenir locket containing multiple views of Hastings landmarks. This collection of constructed narratives are personal souvenirs of living beside the sea in Hastings and St Leonards on Sea, which question the role of the timeless, ever changing seascape in the making and remaking of seaside memories.
