re:collection

Posted in Uncategorized on April 8, 2013 by ronniecreswell

I am taking part in the Lyme Regis ArtsFest “re:collection” project which will be exhibited during ArtsFest  21st September to 29th September 2013.    The project is a collaboration between Lyme Regis ArtsFest and  Lyme Regis Museum, which is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.  The Museum invited Artists to be inspired by objects in their collection.  My interest was drawn to a glass cabinet containing items that have washed down to the beach from the Old Town Dump, which was in use, I am informed,  from the 1920′s until it was closed in 1974 when Lyme Regis ceased to be a Borough.  I decided to make monthly visits to the beach over a year and collect what I could carry away that had come down from the Dump and then decide what to do with it .  I started collecting in March 2012 so have now finished collecting and am cleaning my finds ready for photographic recording.   In the meantime I have taken some initial steps in working with my finds, such as mending old broken objects with paper, researching where they came from.  

I have set up a re:collection page showing photos of some of the work done so far
