Broken Collection- The Tears of Things

OPENING EVENT FRIDAY 10TH FEBRUARY

7pm – 9pm

ENGINE ROOM: EXCHANGE GALLERY PENZANCE

Join us for an evening of performance, video, objects, narrative and stories generated by Café Morte to celebrate the life of a broken object.

The Tears of Things is a growing collection of broken objects that will be exhibited in the Engine Room, Exchange Gallery 10th February – 10th March. All the objects collected for The Tears of Things, have lost their original integrity in some way. The collection will form the beginning of a growing body of research relating to death and our attachments to broken objects.

EVENT: SATURDAY 11TH 10.00 – 4.00 BROKEN WRITING OPEN INVITATION

Members of the public are invited to participate by bringing a broken object to the gallery to be documented photographically and to write a short piece of text that will be added to the collection. The collection will form an online museum of broken objects reflecting the power that these objects still hold.
