Precious – Objects of Remembrance

After death, material possessions outlive the mortal being. The ‘props’ of a lifetime that remain after someone departs the world can embody significant imprints of memory for the bereaved. Such treasured objects help to fill the emotional void and may bridge the distance between the living and the dead.

Precious – Objects of Remembrance is a project on material culture and the sentimental value of things as an exploration of memory, identity, and loss.
