Preamble. . .

The work of Minnie Crook is a minefield of emotion and memory, bringing to light the importance of familial relationships and how they shape our beings. Crook presents to us the intimacies of her family life, of her treasured memories, laying them out for us to soak in in the hopes that we might reflect on our own.

I thoroughly recommend that, if you haven’t already, you invest some time into taking in Crook’s performances and experiencing these intimacies yourself. There is, after all, only so much that can be drawn from images—something that Crook knows and explores through accompanying sound.

Skye Williams (Founder & Head Curator)


‘I have always been interested in the past in looking backwards to look forwards. In my family tree

In my personal histories And in the stories that I have heard from a time before me. I am interested in my genealogical line Lines

in all the lines that connect us together. I am interested what is absent and what is present. What we forget and what is remembered. What we see and what we miss out on. What is passed down to us and what we will pass down to others. I am drawn to the things that have been, in order to shape what will be.’
