Forgetting what lies behind was a mixed media installation that explored the spaces in-between past, present and future, initially developed during a residency at Murray’s Cottage, Hill End in September 2012 with BRAG. Partial recreations of everyday objects – curtains, fences, rope, string, door mats – were created from memories of the residency site, evoking a fragmented sense of permanence, shifting between stages of recollection and the act of ‘letting go’.
