Show Me The Way To Go Home By Ellen Taylor
This exhibitions title is drawn from lyrics Taylor's mum sang to her when she was little. She continues to sing this to her own son, in remembrance of her.
The natural materials featured, have been gathered over many months, they honour the beauty of the natural environment in and around Taylor's home, whilst serving as a memorial to her mum and a reflection on grief.
