Re-interpreting the past through museum exhibits

It is always a delight to go to Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. Around every corner there is surprise. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was intrigued by SOCO Artists’ latest project – an imaginative response to the museum’s exhibits: drawings and paintings, concertina-ed books, beautifully made objects, found objects and textiles.

Sea Crossing Maggie's boat

Sea Crossing

Boats. There is something  about boats. From children playing in the bath with them, sailing them over ponds, boats frustratingly lost from being becalmed or capsizing. Then there are more grown up connotations; travel, exploration, trade, slaves, war and invasion. And  the vulnerability of mass migration in less-than-seaworthy vessels. At the Folkestone Triennial 2011, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths walked into a church and was entranced by Hew Locke’s motley fleet of boats sailing in the knave above her. Magical and thought provoking.
