A big ship, a big iceberg.
A sale of goods.
A lady buys some nice towels, she remembers the ship.
They get used .
They get put away.
They get put in a box when the house is cleared.
They are nearly used for rags.

The first exhibition at the museum was called 'Memento Hominem'. I have always been fascinated by the private collectors cabinets of the 17th century and in particular those that had personal objects, ones that only had meaning to the owner. The museum has been heavily influenced by these so I asked five artists to respond with their own 'living' artefacts........
