RE­MEM­BER Me by Pro­fes­sor He­len Ne­wall is a mul­ti­me­dia art in­stal­la­tion de­signed for an au­di­ence of one to ex­plore the frag­men­ta­tion of mem­ory and iden­tity in the con­text of the First World War.

Com­bin­ing dig­i­tal an­i­ma­tion, phys­i­cal mem­o­ra­bilia and sound­track, Re­mem­ber Me pro­vides a pow­er­ful vis­ual and sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence which brings the sol­diers de­picted in sal­vaged orig­i­nal pho­to­graphs back to our at­ten­tion in the present.

The in­stal­la­tion asks how we re­mem­ber those with­out iden­tity or di­rect mem­o­ries, and how we can com­mem­o­rate them.

The in­stal­la­tion can be viewed in in­di­vid­ual 20-minute ses­sions and runs on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day, June 15-16 at the Arts Cen­tre as part of Edge Hill Uni­ver­sity’s Fes­ti­val of Ideas.

One of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial an­tholo­gies, The Mersey Sound brought a fresh im­age to po­etry and helped to fash­ion a new iden­tity for the city of Liver­pool and for po­etry it­self.

The words and sounds of Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Pat­ten will be re­called, dis­cussed and read aloud in this spe­cial In­sti­tute for Creative En­ter­prise (ICE) event which brings to­gether, in a unique rhyming cou­plet, Cather­ine Mar­can­geli and Paul Far­ley.

Cather­ine and Paul will be in con­ver­sa­tion with ICE’s Di­rec­tor, Pro­fes­sor Roger Shan­non.

Tick­ets are free but book­ing is re­quired.
