Abstract / Summary

We invited artists, writers, academics, undergraduates, museums and member of the community to contribute by writing a short narrative and submitting a photograph of an object that holds memory, story or attachment in their lives. The responses ranged from the deeply personal relationship with an object belonging to the dead to writing triggered by a broken object from a museum collection. Working in the archive of Penlee Gallery and Museum in Penzance gave us an opportunity to explore the forgotten object hidden in the archival boxes, broken and lost. This inspired a collection of short writing in relation to the museum collection.
Tears of things is an ongoing project.
