Peta Jacobs specialises in devoré. She uses this technique to respond to the peeling walls that wee in the exhibition space at Salts Mill. Her main inspiration was an archive photograph of the members of Bradford Wool Exchange in 1953/1954. This piece is using the memories of the mill itself, reflecting its history, instead of focusing of the memories of the artist.

Koji Takaki

Koji Takaki focuses on his own memories, more importantly his own work in order to influence his work for this exhibition. He recycled a part of his work that he made in Manchester and some work that he made in Japan. Drawing inspiration from the work that he had made in these two places. This is a way of physically embedding his memory into his work for everyone to see. Also, perhaps showing how our memories shape who we are today.
