The Past Unravels (site specific commission)

Solo Exhibition

The Merchant’s House, Jersey Museum & Art Gallery
31st March 2012 – 30th December 2012

Step into the magnificent Merchant’s House and be taken on a magical journey through time to the 1860s. Be enchanted as you discover textile installations, sounds and ghostly memories of the family who lived in this once unfashionable part of town – the Ginestets.

Artist Karen Le Roy Harris’ beautiful and moving interpretations of each of the rooms combined with writer Vicky Hinault’s poetic responses reveal the story of the family’s lives and thoughts.

In this innovative new site specific project Karen has researched the family and home and in response has created 9 installations in the rooms of the house which often spill out into the hallways.

Don’t miss this enchanting experience.
