Memories of Tyrrell and Green
To coincide with John Hansard Gallery's opening of Embodied Memories in the new John Hansard Gallery Central, City Eye is delighted to launch Memories of Tyrrell and Green. The film, shot and edited by Sam Taylor whilst working as Production Graduate at City Eye, documents early stages of the project and gives insight to some of the stories and memories shared by former staff and customers of Southampton's old Tyrrell & Green department store. These recollections have inspired the startling works now created by artist Jennifer Anyan in Embodied Memories.
Embodied Memories was commissioned by the John Hansard Gallery and developed with City Eye through Art at the Heart, a partnership of key arts organisations in Southampton working to bring the city's emerging cultural quarter to life. The springboard for this commission has been Southampton City Council's plans to transform the old Tyrrell & Green site into Southampton's new arts complex, featuring a permanent city centre site for the John Hansard Gallery and City Eye. The arts complex is set to open in 2015.
