The Mem­ory Within

‘The Mem­ory Within’ ex­plores the emo­tional as­so­ci­a­tions we hold for ev­ery­day ob­jects, the ones that oc­cupy our homes and in­ti­mate spa­ces that are linked to do­mes­tic rit­ual and the mem­o­ries they evoke. With a sur­vey of trin­kets, or­na­ments and other house­hold things, artist Naomi Tay­lor Royds con­sid­ers the im­por­tance of the fa­mil­iar, con­tem­plat­ing the idea that per­haps it is only through per­sonal con­nec­tion and mem­ory that we find the true value in the or­di­nary.
