Remnants & Traces
Remnant: a small remaining quantity; a piece of cloth after the greater part has been used.
Trace: observe or discover by investigation; a mark or sign that something has existed; copy by drawing over lines; mark out, delineate, sketch; a small quantity.

“Remnants & Traces” charts our personal responses to Newman Brothers Coffin Fitting Factory. We’ve visited the building pre and post restoration, looked at its history and contents finding interest in small details, observing and noting what remains of the evidence left behind. We’ve been inspired by memory, the act of remembering, mortality and funerary practices.
