Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not is a forthcoming exhibition, based on nostalgia and memories and curated by Anna Mould, a third year Fashion Promotion & Imaging student at University for the Creative Arts.

The exhibition includes an installation of a deserted bedroom filled with abandoned objects and furniture. A short film tells the tale of the previous life of these items and the owner who left them behind. All around are aged echoes of sadness and a time that has passed. 

The exhibition aims to make us, the visitors, consider what happens to these objects when we are gone. It poses the question: Will they be stored in a museum for future generations or left alone to go rotten and hysterical?

The abandoned items (including old furniture, mirrors and photographs) will be auctioned following the exhibition, allowing us to 'rescue' these objects from their abandonment.

The Private View will take place at the Horse Hospital, Bloomsbury, on Monday 10th May from 6-9pm. The exhibition continues until Wednesday 13th May.
