Ongoing during gallery hours

Ania Bas presents ‘Unwanted Memory Bank’, a project that invites you to consider the value we attach to objects and memories. The space is filled with provocations waiting to be activated by visitors. Drop in to create three-minute-long sculptures from objects found in your pockets, observational drawings of stuff you don’t need or want, make lists of things you want to stop worrying about or leave outlines of unwanted belongings.

The Pump House Gallery’s InHouse Project Space is designed to create a space for artists to present work that invites visitors and families to share their thoughts and ideas through hands-on activities. Ania Bas’s ‘Unwanted Memory Bank’ compliments the Zadie Xa’s exhibition in the gallery.

About the artist

Ania Bas is an artist working across text, performance, publishing and social engagement to create situations that support dialogue and exchange, as well as explore and question existing frameworks of participation. She is interested in the ways that objects and narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people.
