A Masters of Fine Arts exhibition by Lucy Bea Jost.

An exploration of how discarded-and-then-reclaimed childhood artifacts can communicate details of our relationship with material culture and our past and present selves. Using children’s toys sourced from the Saint Vincent De Paul Dig ‘N Save Liquidation Center in Madison, WI,  I used these objects in partnership with artifacts from my own childhood collections to develop memory-based narratives. These spaces speak to our relationship with objects of the past, the dichotomy between childhood and adulthood, and the “grown-up” associations we might place on these objects today.
