An Offering To Mnemosyne
Installation at Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells
Wednesday 22nd May - Saturday 1st June 2019
Mnemosyne is one of the oldest goddesses in Greek mythology, daughter of Uranus and Gaia, mother of the nine Muses - goddesses of the arts.
Athena Jane Churchill creates installations and imaginary worlds, weaving together strands of her work in theatre set design, visual art installation, making and curating. Her work invites viewers to step into a world between the real and the imagined and journey within. Inspired by and exploring the relationship between museum collection, archive and created artefacts, her work reflects her fascination
with traces of memory in heritage objects, myths and ancient devotional sites.
Her previous project, ‘Degrees of Separation’, incorporated seven years of artwork, culminated in an exhibition ‘Echoes Across the Century’ at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London in 2017.
'Re:remembering An Offering To Mnemosyne' was previous exhibited at the Crypt Gallery in Seaford, where visitors were uniform in their praise (see below). It is with thanks to Trinity Theatre that a new set of visitors will be able to partake of this new investigation – a journey into the labyrinth of memory.
Athena Jane Churchill once again weaves her magic to create an atmospheric shrine – an offering to Mnemosyne, the Goddess of Memory.
