  • Titill er á ensku Anchors and portkeys : a short guide to objects and time travel
  • Meistara
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    In this paper I will investigate how and what we attach meaning to and the way personal relics can become vessels for memory and experience. These objects have the ability to ground us, whilst also transporting us between place and time; they hold a potential for time travel. What do these selected objects say about who we are, where we’ve been and what we feel? Through this research I have also found myself considering how this can additionally be connected with how culture can be accessed as an outsider and what brings on a sense of belonging. I am also contemplating the key words of grounding and anchoring. I reflect on what grounds me, and how I am anchored to a specific time and place through objects. This idea extends to taking less physically tangible sensory objects like sounds, songs, smells and tastes; and considering them as vehicles for time travel. I will also analyse the way I use comedy in my work, how I work with absurd elements and relate to Social Surrealism. I will reflect on these key aspects through their connection to my installation practice, subversive interventions and use of performative roles within space.
