SUPPORTING FAMILIES WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE DEATH OF A BABY THROUGH MISCARRIAGE, STILLBIRTH, NEONATAL DEATH OR TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY DUE TO FETAL ABNORMALITY
Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem. This exhibition aims to sensitively explore what happens when a baby dies, from both parental and professional perspectives. The work on show at the exhibition features visual images, film, physical objects, sound installation and parent/ sibling art work. It toured in London and Sheffield during 2017 and Teardrop has worked in partnership with the exhibition team to bring the collection to the North East.
During its time with us, Remembering Baby will be free and open to the public. It was inspired by an Economic and Social Research Council funded project lead by Dr Kate Reed and a team of researchers (Dr Elspeth Whitby and Dr Julie Ellis) at the University of Sheffield. They worked collaboratively with artist Hugh Turvey to curate the exhibition, which also features sound art produced by Justin Wiggan and graphics designed by Lee Simmons.
