When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. — Ansel Adams

DUST is a shop, gallery and event space set up in 2020 as an artist led project.

The shop brings together artefacts, objects, artworks and research on creative practice and grief. The shop borrows work to exhibit and sell by artists, writers and poets, relating to death and grief as a way to generate conversation. The aim is to create a multi-disciplined shop as a platform for conversation about death, ritual, grief and end of life to take place. In the future these conversations will be initiated by events such as live streamed performance lectures, podcasts, death cafes and installations in the shop.

EXHIBITIONS

The next shop exhibition is by artist Annabel Pettigrew, whose practice is research and pilgrimage based, resulting in Printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, performance, writing, photography, video and textiles.


She runs the artist-led collective group, ‘Throes of Grief’, a research-based initiative exploring grief, and the presence of grief-related themes in contemporary art practice.
Within her practice Annabel explores grief rituals and traditions, with a view to developing a contextual language and a grief specific rhetoric relating to the importance the presence of grief has in contemporary arts practice.

Annabel Pettigrew, Stone Circle of Archetypes, ceramic 2021

The show features sites from an imagined terrain, which is simultaneously true to nature and location, yet fantastically ethereal and arranged with sacred sites appearing enormous and resonating energy. One site acts like a portal, transporting and delivering me through my travels. I call it my Space Dolmen. It’s a burial chamber, I think it might be ancestrally mine from a past life. The pieces of work in the show are an amalgamation of Cornish sacred sites, imagined sacred sites and magical oratories, and archetypal figures presented as standing stones, encountered through real-life pilgrimage and astrally projected visions.                                                                            Annabel Pettigrew, 2022
