Tall Tales Tiny Tavern
Shown: Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery - Royal Tunbridge Wells
Writer Jo Kimber and I were commissioned by Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery to react to their dolls house furniture collection. We developed a Narrative where the scaled version of the Sussex Arms Tavern was made by a man called Elijah Barlow 150 years in the past.
As a visitor you encounter the same dolls house pub throughout 5 moments in time with accompanying written narratives of the inhabitants of the Sussex Arms tavern, with an overarching narrative related to Elijah and a hidden treasure.
The exhibition consisted on a film (below), 5 dolls houses with accompanying stories & 3 large scale drawings that tied additional museum collections with the Elijah Barlow story.
