Catalogue of an exhibition by Pippa Young at the third room, New Street Gallery, Penzance Cornwall

Transcript of Traces exhibition catalogue

  • T R A C E SAn exhibition of work by Pippa Young December 13th - January 14th

    the third room, New Street gallery, Penzance

  • Stilled Lives, oil on canvas, 400mm X 400mm

  • Traces is inspired by a family archive of photographs, some of which were

    taken on the Isles of Scilly a century ago, and pottery fragments unearthed

    from the kitchen garden of a 17th century house in Perranuthnoe. These

    found remnants of past lives seem to call for documentation, elevation

    and preservation but, more often than not, are discarded.

    The reproductions of a tiny moment from the past, represented by the

    photographs, result in emblems of transience; fixing our distance from

    the time and people depicted. The images are unsatisfactory signifiers of

    vanished lives; the fragments of crockery are inadequate representations

    of their original form. Should they be treasured or do they simply serve as

    memento mori?

    Pippa Young is studying fine art at University College Falmouth and is

    a member of the New Street Artists cooperative based at New Street

    Gallery, opposite the Exchange in Penzance, Cornwall.
