DUST is an artist led project space set up by Lucy Willow in 2020 operating from an old shop in Penzance.

The shop brings together artefacts, objects, artworks and research relating to death and grief. The shop borrows work to exhibit 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 and our relationship to the dead to take place. These conversations are also initiated by events such as live streamed performance lectures, podcasts, death cafes and installations in the shop.

Emily found lost and broken things and displayed them in the window, so their owners could come and collect them; the shop did not sell anything. The toys discussed what the new object was; someone (usually Madeleine) would tell a story related to the object.
