For the ‘Collect’ exhibition at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery, I was drawn to a tiny 19th century carnelian souvenir locket. Referencing the materiality of the locket and its’ multiple views of landmarks in Hastings, I used a found object as a lens or portal to capture ‘views’ of the area, focussing on the ephemeral. Hovering in space, dislocated from their surroundings, the organically shaped ‘glimpses’ of the mutable sky transform the familiar in unexpected ways.
