3 month residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall The public were invited to bring their unwanted gifts to the gallery, where they were catalogued, exhibited and underwent the creative process. Each item was transformed into an “original” work of art and returned to the donor at a celebratory event at the end of the residency. During the residency, Mitra spent time in the gallery studio/gallery/shop talking with the public about the value we place on things and how artistic application changes the value of a given object; in this case, unwanted gifts.
