A creative collaboration between artists Joanna Whittle and Dr Jane Wildgoose, and Dr Lizzy Craig-Atkins, Department of Archaeology. New paintings and ceramic artefacts explore themes of funerary practices and material culture.
This research will expand elements of Joanna’s current practice, enriching it with a deeper knowledge of the underlying themes of ritual and its residue in the landscape. From discussions and exploration of landscapes, sites, archaeological texts and associated artefacts Joanna will explore how they reflect our place in the landscape through how we choose to mourn, memorialise and remember.
As part of this project Joanna has also had the opportunity to collaborate with Dr Jane Wildgoose, founder and Keeper of The Wildgoose Memorial Library, London, who will also be showing a piece from her ‘Lost But Not Forgotten’ research project: in which she reflects on the disruption of the relationship between ritual, human remains and landscape, concerning contested human remains in museum collections.
