Join Savannah-based artist Jessica Pope (American, B. 1983) for a discussion of her site-specific installation Folklore.

Folklore is the 2019 iteration of Telfair Museums’ annual Boxed In/Break Out project, a museum-sponsored opportunity that invites artists to propose an original installation of artwork to invigorate the six large windows along the east side of the Jepson Center on Barnard Street. Pope’s installation consists of six large-scale paper quilts centered around the Kodachrome slides, filled with stories of the past that evoke a comforting sense of nostalgia. Each quilt consists of 96 blocks made up of 3,000 hand-cut pieces with varying color schemes and patterns that focus on specific chapters in the family’s history. The memories, once hidden, now will come alive at different times of the day based on the direction of the sun reflecting through the Jepson Center’s east-facing windows.
