A car boot containing a miniature museum Is popping up at scenic locations, roadsides, towns and villages around Somerset.
 
The Car Boot Museum’s specially created wooden cabinet houses a collection of everyday objects, text and images put together by artist and writer Alice Maddicott. She is joined on the tour by poet Ana Seferovic to create a collaborative poetic travelogue. 
The project has been commissioned by Somerset Art Works for this year's Arts Weeks Festival. 
Alice is touring her home county to discover the secret stories behind objects and the local landscape. 
 
Visitors are invited to bring along their own objects which can be donated to the Museum or be recorded and taken away again. People can write their own ideas and memories of the area and add them to the Car Boot Museum.
 
Alice said:
“I would love people to bring along objects with a special memory for them or an interesting tale to tell. We rely so much on storing information digitally now, but I’d like to move away from that and to find out about the stories behind real objects. Sometimes an object has no value except to the person for whom it holds a special memory. I’d like people to share those stories.”
 
The mini museum will evolve and change as it travels around the county. Each day it will be inspired by the places it visits and the new objects it acquires.

The Car Boot Museum is winding its way along Somerset’s roads, visiting Priddy Village green, Steart Marshes, Dunkery Beacon, Burrow Mump, Minehead and a range of other locations, ending up at Nunney Market Place on Sunday 9 August.

Juče 1. oktobra, predstavljena je nova knjiga poetskog tandema Ane Seferović i Alice Maddicott „The Travelogue of The Car Boot Museum“ u izdanju Somerset Art Works (Momentum Project), Arts Council England.

Ova neobična knjiga narativne poezije prati putovanje ove dve pesnikinje kroz Somerset, zapadnu oblast Engleske. Ana i Alice su tokom avgusta ove godine provele deset dana putujući u Mini Morrisu, u čijem prtljažniku je bio minijaturni muzej – sastavljen od svakodnevnih predmeta, starih suvenira i fotografija – koji je imao za cilj da oživi, ali i prikupi uspomene, sećanja i razmišljanja ljudi Somerseta koji nabasaju na ovaj mali putujući pop-up poetski događaj. Muzej se zaustavljao na raznim unapred određenim, ali i spontanim lokacijama, a žitelji Somerseta su pozivani da svojim suvenirima i idejama obogate ovaj muzej. Ovaj putopis je rezultat mesta koje su posetile, ljudi koje su upoznale, priča i uspomena koje su čule i predmeta koje su pronalazile.

Ana Seferović je nagrađivana pesnikinja i dramaturškinja iz Beograda, a Alice Maddicott objavljivana pesnikinja, spisateljica i dramaturškinja iz Londona sa 12 godina iskustva u kreativnim projektima u školama, muzejima i zajednicama. Zajedno su osnovale nezavisnu izdavačku kuću Dirty Confetti posvećenu kolaborativnim projektima žena svih godina. One su osetile da postoji prostor za izdavačku kuću koja se fokusira na knjige koje vole da čitaju i stvaraju – dela koja zamagljuju liniju izimeđu poezije, proze i vizuelne umetnosti; dela koja konstantno evoluiraju i uzimaju saradnju kao svoju suštinu. Dirty Confetti takođe predstavlja i digitalnu arhivu njihovih projekata.
