The third theme in the series is Loss: Wrapping an object as a symbol of loss

There are different kinds of loss; death of loved ones, loss of a job, friendships or relationships, and the feeling of loss from the restrictions during the COVID crisis.

Artist Alinah Azadeh invites you to create a small ‘memory object’ to help reflect and honour the things or people we may have lost in our lives.

“This idea came from an art installation ‘The Gifts’ that I did where hundreds of people contributed. After the sudden death of my mother, I began to wrap her objects and personal effects with fabric. I bound them to tell stories about her, celebrate her qualities and the things I missed about her.”
