Discover fascinating stories of ordinary people in this immersive exhibition

A row of terraced houses used to stand where Brighton’s Phoenix Gallery is now. In the Sixties, they were bought and demolished to make way for office space. Apart from one. Harriet Silvester – who lived in the middle – refused to move out of her home.

An immersive exhibition created around the exact space where her house once stood, HOME presents fascinating, heartbreaking and uplifting stories of ordinary people. MOOP and Mnemoscene have collaborated with members of the public to explore how their collections of everyday objects, photos and documents can be curated to represent our emotional connection with the home and showcase untold narratives that chronicle real people’s lives.
