An Installation in the Crypt Gallery Undercroft

by Athena Jane Churchill       

Mnemosyne was one of the oldest goddesses in Greek mythology, best known for having given birth to the nine muses, Goddesses of the arts. 

The artist creates installations and imaginary worlds, bringing together strands of her work in theatre set design, visual art installation, making and curating. Her work invites viewers to step into a world between the real and the imagined and journey within. Inspired by and exploring the relationship between museum collection, archive and created artefacts, her work reflects her fascination with traces of memory in heritage objects, myths and ancient devotional sites.

This new project marks a new investigation – a journey into the labyrinth of memory.

Athena Jane Churchill weaves her magic to create an atmospheric shrine in the Undercroft – an offering to Mnemosyne, the goddess of Memory.

Her last project, ‘Degrees of Separation’, spanning 7 years of artwork, culminated in an exhibition ‘Echoes Across the Century’ at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London last year.
