My Favourite Chair: Samantha Laurens

31 March – 14 April 2018

To run alongside our exhibition ‘Chair/Cadair’ in the main gallery we are exhibiting our visitor’s favourite chairs and the stories and memories they hold in the gallery foyer.

“This chair came from the family home in Poole, it belonged to my Auntie Barbara who was quite a character – a WW1 heroine with a wooden leg. It was then one of the chairs around my kitchen table in the various little cottages where we lived in west Wales from the 1970’s until now. There’s felt pen and paint on it from various art projects, renovations, children and grandchildren. The legs always got a bit loose, I used to put them upside down in the rain occaisionally and this one is held together with a pair of tights.”
