Architecture at the Edge wished to mark in some tangible way a response to the universal realities of death, dying and loss during the COVID–19 pandemic. The House of Memory installation invites the public to share their personal experience of loss and grief during the pandemic. Viewers are offered a platform to lament that loss within the structure by leaving a memento or a short written message in remembrance and as a symbol of hope for the future.
House of Memory is designed by architect David Kelly and commissioned by Architecture at the Edge. It featured at this year’s Galway International Arts Festival, #GIAF2021.
Where: Festival Gallery, Galway
When: 1-18 September 2021. Monday – Sunday, 12 noon – 6pm. Late Opening Friday only to 8pm
