Ruin and Rebuild Exhibition
Posted: 9 November 2017

This unique pop-up exhibition uses creative work to reflect on what it means to live within urban spaces affected by constant design, dereliction, and rejuvenation.
One of the exhibitors, Alexandra Gray, a previous Sapphire resident at our Bethany House hostel, is using the building and it's history to explore the idea of 'home' for her exhibit. Alexandra has returned to Bethany House a number of times to speak to staff and residents about their experiences of the building and has invited our existing residents and the Bethany House team to the exhibition on November 25th.
So what's the exhibition all about?
From the city of London to Tunisian life in the suburbs, themes of nostalgia, home, abandonment, family and struggle are documented and imaginatively explored.
The exhibition is part of the Being Human Festival 2017 and is open between 12pm and 5pm on November 25th 2017 where you can see artefacts, photography, film, art, performance, and poetry on the theme of 'lost and found.' Each exhibit will be accompanied by the artist so visitors can discuss the art with the creators.
