Come and help fix and create earrings for The Chandelier of Lost Earrings for a charitable and creative cause! Join the artists, Sharon Campbell and Lauren Sagar in the development of this Arts Council England supported sculpture.
The Chandelier of Lost Earrings, a mass participation artwork, will gather together the earrings left after its pair is lost. Now, at last there is a home for that lonely earring that is still in your drawer! Each earring is one of a pair, the other having been lost. Without these contributions there can be no chandelier. The project emerged from engagement with staff at St. Mary’s Maternity Hospital, Manchester, and will be dedicated to them, to the mothers who have delivered at the hospital and to everyone who has cared for them. Initially the Chandelier will be exhibited in the artists’ glass Summer House sculpture in the hospital grounds.
Come for 5 minutes or an hour. You don’t need to bring anything except some imagination.
