I Too, am a Survivor is a 360 degree Immersive experience, set across a 12 sided room.
Through the words of T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet Sarah Howe and an immersive audio-visual experience, the Chinese ceramic display explores the imagined lives lived by seven precious objects from the World Cultures Gallery at National Museums, Liverpool. By looking at the object's point of view - their journeying, belonging, dislocation and resilience - perhaps we learn not only about their history, but of ourselves too.
The World Cultures gallery showcases World Museum’s huge collections from Africa, The Americas, Asia and Oceania. Featuring more than 1,600 objects, the gallery explores the exchange of ideas and objects between Europe and the many cultures represented in the displays.
This is the first in a series of interventions or ‘provocations’ at the World Cultures gallery in World Museum, which seek to use theatrical or imaginative displays to expose the difficult and contested histories of collections through collaborations with artists. This is World Museum’s way to talk openly about how objects from around the world have come to be in its World Cultures gallery and, uniquely, in Liverpool. The museum is seeking to challenge how objects are displayed an d interpreted, and by whom.
On permenant display at World Museum, Liverpool now.
