Souvenir

6 June 2012- 24 June 2012

June will see Battersea Park become a hive of activity in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. As part of the festivities, Pump House Gallery is hosting a month long exhibition of royal memorabilia and royal memories provided by the public. The exhibition will see artefacts come together alongside photo portraits and written testaments of the owner’s anecdotal stories.

'Souvenir' is an ongoing project by artist-curator Josh Knowles about popular culture, mass production and souvenirs.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the notions of souvenirs, and collective memories that fascinate me, plus interact with the great British public. The exhibition is about people’s stories. It is a way to look at everyday people’s experience of living with a royal family. It is not only a celebration of the Diamond Jubilee, but also the lives and voices of the British public. We hope it will provide fun and also something meaningful to the jubilee month." Josh Knowles 2012

‘Souvenir’ has been commissioned for the Diamond Jubilee Festival by curator Clare Patey.
