This exhibition, curated by artist Eleanor Davies and anthropologist/historian Sophie Parker, is a celebration of the everyday objects that we frequently take for granted, or think of as rubbish. These often overlooked objects tell a story of the subtle cultural shifts that underlie our everyday experiences of social and historical change.
The exhibition explores the history of Lewisham, including the days of the foreign cattle market, the battle of Lewisham in 1977, the millennium, and the ongoing protest to save Lewisham’s hospital. The unlikely objects brought together prompt a discussion about the nature of archives and their purpose and meaning in a society driven by mass consumption.
This project is supported through the Santander graduate training scheme in partnership with Goldsmiths’ Department of Visual Cultures and the Enterprise Fund.
