A new exhibition opens at the Horniman today, running until 14 March 2021. It is open between 10am and 5:30pm in The Studio gallery, lower ground floor. The exhibition is free, though you must currently
book tickets to enter the museum.
What would your life story look like if you told it solely through symbols?
Each scroll hanging in this exhibition will be one individual’s story. Visitors can enjoy decoding the scrolls, helping to normalise untold stories from our communities.
The work will place the life stories within larger questions about who we are today, and inviting visitors to explore their own life stories.
This exhibition is the result of a social arts project, in partnership with artist
R.M. Sánchez-Camus and local organisations including:
St Christopher’s Hospice,
Three Cs, and
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust’s Health Inclusion Team
The artwork is painted on papyrus and sewn into the scrolls, completed with the lead artist and created in workshops with each of the local organisations.
