Loughborough Jewels Exhibition

From: Thu 28 January, 11:00am
To: Sat 30 January, 4:00pm

Venue: Market Town Corner, Carillon Court

FREE

Come along to the Market Town Corner for the conclusion of Loughborough Jewels - a project by jeweller and jewellery historian Roberta Bernabei. This participatory project seeks to share and preserve memories of the Market Town of Loughborough, and has worked with local residents to create a set of unique brooches.

Participants were asked to bring along an image, photograph or object relating to their memories of Loughborough, before describing to Roberta the item's significance to themselves and the town. Roberta then combined imagery and words resulting from these workshops with the form of a window frame found in the town centre to create the brooches. This exhibition gives everyone a chance to see what has been created during the project, and all brooches will all be returned to their new owners after its conclusion.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at the following times - please note the differing times for Saturday 30 January:

Thursday 28 January
11am - 4pm

Friday 29 January
11am - 4pm

Saturday 30 January
10am - 1pm

Roberta will also be running a special workshop for children aged 5+ and their families. Click here to find out more. Please be aware that parents/guardians DO NOT need to book a ticket in order to attend this family workshop.

FREE - no booking required

Recorded in Loughborough’s Carillon over the course of a weekend, Sam Belinfante’s audio-visual installation considers processes of ageing as markers of time passing; a resonant issue for thinking through and about sound as a medium. 

Informed by the concept of ‘tintinnabulation’—the lingering sound of a struck bell—it explores the subtle but constant processes of decay that touch the Carillon and the people and objects that coalesce around it. The work documents collaborative actions taken to extend the life of the bells, contrasting their quiet dormancy with the bustle of restoration. 

Installed in the ground floor of the Carillon tower, in a space ordinarily used to display objects from the Carillon Museum collection, the film celebrates small acts of care while reflecting on the impossibility of reversing material entropy. Whilst the Carillon is an enduring musical symbol of Loughborough, Belinfante’s approach eschews more obvious explorations of identity for a quiet meditation on the caring processes that are integral to all musical performances, instruments and the maintenance of a place’s identity. Sound, curation and performance intertwine in a struggle of preservation and de-composition. 

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Department of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.
