Cloth and memory: Dismantling the exhibition
It was very sad to take down the Cloth and memory exhibition on Tuesday. It seems only yesterday we were hanging it all. The room seemed empty and forlorn with nothing hanging on the walls or windows and everything packed into a few cardboard boxes. Although it does show what a large exhibition can be produced from two or three boxes and a few folded curtains! However, a memory of the installation remains embedded in the fabric of the building and will always be part of the history of Salts Mill. Remnants of pins and tally marks remain as silent witnesses to the exhibition as the door closes and the room enfolds its memories and secrets once again.
