Bodies of Knowledge, 2018
Modelling clay, polaroids, acrylic
Hosted by the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology as part of the Architects of Change programme
Supported by Artisa Foundation

This workshop series and exhibition employed layered storytelling, wordplay, and montage to explore the collection of artefacts at the Petrie Museum, London. With a specific aim to unlearn and decolonise the museum’s existing narratives, participants were invited to unpack the collection and disrupt the institution’s usual means of interpretation, blurring the line between the ‘producers’ and ‘receivers’ of history.
