Abstract / Summary

Homeward Bound or An Exercise in Collecting Beginnings brings together research by the fourth Pearson Creative Research Fellow at the British Library, Lizzie Ridout, in 2007.

Lizzie has been working as ‘domestic archaeologist’ within the collections, seeking out references to mundane objects with bizarre or poetic twists. Contained within this book are references to her intriguing finds. Beetle-
wing dresses, moustache cups, electric tablecloths and ghosts of stockings all make an appearance. Interspersed amongst original source material, Lizzie has included visual work documenting how this body of uncanny things has inspired her in her own practice. A new collection, somewhere on the cusp between what is real and what is imagined, is created.
