Lindsey Mendick: virtual tour of Regrets, I’ve had a few

January 2022

Take a look at the inaugural exhibition at our gallery in Ilford in this 360 degree virtual tour.

Lindsey Mendick was selected through an open call for a commissioned solo exhibition that launched SPACE’s new gallery in Ilford in December 2019. As part of the commission, Mendick worked with a group of Ilford-based older people to explore hindsight, nostalgia and folklore through ceramics. Together they built clay effigies in the shape of the advice they would have given their younger selves. For the exhibition – constructed as a stage for storytelling – the artist collaborated with her mother, a talented children’s clothes designer and seamstress, and together they created fabric adornments for the works. 

The VR rooms are created with the support of Arts Council England.

Lindsey Mendick, Regrets, I’ve had a few is sponsored by Mercers’ Charitable Foundation.
