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.
