Exhibition opening: Dream of the Dead, Hear from the Living

New work by Liverpool artist Jonathon Beaver will be exhibited in a show at the Domino Gallery, called Dream of the Dead, Hear from the Living, opening 9 May.

Beaver, who works with embroidery and stop motion animation, took up a three month residency at the Liverpool University Centre for Archive Studies to explore themes of family and local history, based on genealogical research conducted in archives across Merseyside.

Explaining the theme of the residency and upcoming exhibition, Jonathon said: “The residency started on the anniversary of the death of my Grandma O’Leary and the title of the exhibition is one of her superstitions. I want this work to explore the family tree and the phrases, habits and memories that disappear from history so easily”.
