Slow Edit - Becky Brewis



Leith School of Art Exhibition Space 15 September 2023 - 09 December 2023 09:30 - 16:30 daily North Junction Street Campus

This exhibition of ceramics and accompanying works explores the materiality of domestic space – the walls, wallpaper, and personal paraphernalia that are the stuff of our immediate surroundings at home.

The works invite reflection on how we write ourselves into the spaces we live in and why we keep the things we keep: the hundreds of photos of nameless views; the albums collected from the chemist still in their original packaging; the children’s drawings that make it onto the kitchen wall and stay there.

The starting point for Slow Edit was a stack of 90s paper photo albums from the artist’s childhood and the textured wallpaper that covers her studio walls. With digital technology increasingly replacing the paper trails of lives lived, the works explore how our memories are embedded in the materials around us and within the material culture of our times.”
