This exhibition presents a collection of glass time capsules incorporating family heirlooms and personal items to illustrate ways we remember and preserve the past. The body of work looks at ways that people hold onto memories through letters, mementos, clothing, photographs, botanical specimens and ephemera.

‘Forget Me Not’ draws heavily on a series of heirlooms that have been passed down through my own family – particularly my Grandmother and Great Grandmother. These works utilise items personal to me but aim to illustrate a wider, more universal truth.
