The exhibition - “Return to Sender” - was curated by artist Sally Madge and runs to the end of September at Berwick Museum and Art Gallery (within Berwick Barracks).
Poised between museum display and art installation, this exhibition includes items from the Shelter archive as well as artefacts created from a beach combing and litter picking event at the Shelter site in July. Linked to Berwick Film Festival’s theme of ‘Border Crossings’, the title of the installation refers to the fact that much of the flotsam and jetsam washed up on the shores of Lindisfarne is carried there by tidal currents from various places north of the island, including Berwick.
The aim is to return some of this material from whence it came and exhibit it as transformed items, including sculpture, assemblage, video, photography, film props, writings and recorded events. Artworks by collaborating artists are also included in the installation as well as artefacts generated from a postal art project where packages containing beach litter have been sent to, transformed and received back from a range of recipients, including visual artists, children, designers, scientists, writers and others.
