One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure // Seniors Art School

Our Seniors Art School occupied Marcia Farquhar’s piece The Open University – a pop-up lecture theatre located in a skip – to consider the value of objects and ideas. Working with artist Holly Graham, the group produced a short hand-bound publication, with the

A talking project considering how we value objects and ideas; taking Marcia Farquar’s piece The Open University – a pop-up lecture theatre located in a skip – as a point of departure. Over the course of two days, artist Holly Graham will invite individuals to select their own items to either dispose of or save from the trash, and will develop a series of written and spoken word pieces around these subjects, drawing on anecdotes and fictional narratives. The group will gather these texts into a short hand-bound publication, with the project culminating in a series of readings, with the recorded audio existing as a document of these performances and as artworks in their own right. Holly Graham is an artist based in London. Much of her work considers the malleable and subjective nature of individual and collective memory. Bound up in this lies an interest in recording mechanisms, documents, evidence and processes of editing. She graduated from MA Printmaking at the Royal College of Art in 2014. Recent exhibitions and projects include: On my island none of this would be true, Arebyte, London (2018); After Harry Jacobs: Outside, Cypher Billboard, London (2017); House Work, 53 Back Road, London (2017); Altai: Experiments in Collective Practice, RCA Dyson Gallery, London (2017).
