An exhibition which reinterprets spaces in the home has begun.

The contemporary display of art "The Lamp of Memory” can now be seen at Valentines Mansion in Emerson Road, Ilford.

Curated by Cristina Ramos and Anne Sellers, the pair named their show after the book by 19th century English theorist John Ruskin, believing that it reflects the importance of architecture as a “container of memories and meaning”.

The curators are students of the MA Curating the Contemporary at The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery.

The exhibition is open to the public on Tuesdays between 10am and 5pm and Sundays between 11am and 5pm until March 30.
