Micro Museum

Julia Ellen Lancaster [UK ]

2018.08.23 - 2018.08.26

Julia Ellen Lancaster is a visual artist/maker and curator based in London, UK. During the residency Julia will develop a temporary ‘Micro Museum’ in Studio 1 housing a collection of objects and documentation of objects through drawings and photographs, alongside recorded stories from the community. Its intention; to subvert the role of a museum to become a place that not only reflects communities of the past but also its living communities of the present. It is fitting that the residency coincides with the Obon or Bon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to honour the spirits of one’s ancestors. The Micro Museum will embody the theme of ‘the home’ and the objects that are common to all homes, but that are distinctive by the choices in how we display them, as ‘an individual’. The desire for individualism is predominantly a western notion, in direct conflict with an eastern culture based on a common or shared experience and mutual respect.
