SYNOPSIS:

Filmed in Barrow in Furness. 2019.

A set of trinkets or good luck charms have been attached to silver necklaces and hung within the street grids of Barrow.

Each trinket has been made from items Jack has collected since he was a child; marbles, shiny stuff, toys cars, buttons – small objects charged with personal hidden meaning, full of luck, good fortune and mystic power.

They are there now, somewhere in Barrow, hanging under the towns surface, within its civic infrastructure, just out of sight, warding off misfortune, occasionally glinting in the sun and catching someone’s eye.

Found materials. Film.

Jack Brown is a socially engaged artist working across a range of mediums. His work articulates or allows instances of linkage, observation, rumination or pause. He creates projects and events that bring people together through making or thinking collectively. Jack often works with other people; collaborates, teaches, coordinates, leads public realm projects and facilitates artist networks. His work looks at the overlooked, things that should be given more than a passing glance, moments that would benefit from magnification. Often as a counterbalance to his socially engaged practice, Jack’s work plays with ideas of placement, slightness, observation and interaction.
