The Museum of Loss and Renewal is a roaming art practice nurtured by Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen. It offers space, time and contexts for making and sharing, with a focus on the challenges we face in our individual and social lives.

Merging production, education and research The Museum of Loss and Renewal manifests itself in multiple forms such as exhibitions, public studios, screenings, residencies and publications. These activities often incorporate interdisciplinary public gatherings.

RESIDENCY PROGRAMME

 

Since 2017 The Museum of Loss and Renewal runs a residency programme in Collemacchia, a small italian village in the Molise region. Each residency provides artists, curators, musicians or writers with uninterrupted periods of time to reflect and/or to produce work.

THE MUSEUM OF LOSS AND RENEWAL ON MONTE MARE, MOLISE (2017)

 

The Museum of Loss and Renewal contributed a new work to ‘Shelter Stone - the Artist and the Mountain’. The project takes the form of a newsprint publication, in a numbered edition of 250 that features around 35 artists and writers, all with a fascination with the mountain landscape: physical, spiritual, pioneering, poetical, ritualistic.

NO NEUTRAL REPRESENTATIONS

 

The slide projection 'No Neutral Representations' is a series of notebook pages with associated postcards. The role of art in end of life issues is explored.
