‘The Grief Gallery’ welcomes visitors to acknowledge personal and collective losses through the contemplation of objects: the ones left by people we’ve lost and kept by those left behind.
This edition of ‘The Grief Gallery’ explores the bridging of distance: Between personal and collective grief, between loss and recovery, between physical locations and disparate cultures, between then and now, and between the dead and the living.
‘The Grief Gallery at DesignTO’ is presented by Lisbon-based grief curator Charlene Lam as part of the inaugural FLDWRK x DesignTO Residency ‘6ft (a)part’.
The community is invited to contribute to ‘The Grief Gallery’s’ collection at the in-person exhibition at MADE Design, where visitors can honour their loved ones with a place on the physical and proverbial plinth, that mainstay of gallery spaces.
Everyone worldwide will be able to view and contribute to the online gallery wall by sharing images and stories of the belongings of their loved ones lost at www.thegriefgallery.com.
