Museums at Night 2014
In the run up to their collaboration for Museums at Night 2014, artist Amy Sharrocks will be appearing at Swansea Museum to discuss DAYTRIP. An invitation to fall. Come along on Thursday May 1st at 7pm to hear the artist discuss her work and receive your invitations to fall.
There are many falls: a general difficulty keeping up, the fall of an Empire, falling asleep, economic slumps and crashes, industrial depressions and recession, falls from grace. Children teach us that falling is a human condition, but somehow we forget that as we grow up…
Ever fallen? No matter. Try again. Fall again. Fall better.
In addition, we’d like to invite you to discuss and talk about her Museum of Water. The Museum of Water is a collection of publicly donated water and accompanying stories. Accumulating over two years in different sites worldwide, Museum of Water is an invitation to ponder our precious liquid and how we use it.
Choose what water is most precious to you. Find a bottle to put it in. Tell us why you chose this water. We will keep it for you.
Help us build a collection of water for future generations to enjoy.
