T R ACES An exhibition of work by Pippa Young • December 13th - January 14th the third room, New Street gallery, Penzance


Stilled Lives, oil on canvas, 400mm X 400mm


‘Traces’ is inspired by a family archive of photographs, some of which were taken on the Isles of Scilly a century ago, and pottery fragments unearthed from the kitchen garden of a 17th century house in Perranuthnoe. These found remnants of past lives seem to call for documentation, elevation and preservation but, more often than not, are discarded. The reproductions of a tiny moment from the past, represented by the photographs, result in emblems of transience; fixing our distance from the time and people depicted. The images are unsatisfactory signifiers of vanished lives; the fragments of crockery are inadequate representations of their original form. Should they be treasured or do they simply serve as memento mori? Pippa Young is studying fine art at University College Falmouth and is a member of the New Street Artists cooperative based at New Street Gallery, opposite the Exchange in Penzance, Cornwall.
