Hand Drawn Histories

“When you get lost in a really strange place, nothing is more comforting than having found your
friend whom you trust and can show the way.”
― Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Jacqueline’s work explored the friendships formed in around Ancoats, those who have; shared their memories, mapped their journeys and guided her through the worlds that surround the Horsfal Shop.  Children, young people, professionals, those living in plush apartments and those who lived in a hostiles mapped their journeys; each map represents a new friend, persons personal perspective of place, together they stand as statements of a community voicing of memories and hopes. Alongside these maps there  Jacqueline created work that pulls on the history of Horsfalling taking copper (industrial) wire and knitting it into a map of Ancoats, that is intertwined with quotes from the friends we have made and connecting peoples shared memories through sound and experience of place.
