Curated by Jennifer Buckle & Sonya Corbin Dwyer, Psychology Program, Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfound land. Photographs by Dean Peckford.
This exhibition of photographs is part of a larger study on the meaning and purpose of commemorative tattoos. The photographs represent the initial part of research conducted by the psychology professors Jennifer Buckle and Sonya Corbin Dwyer. The study involved twenty-two volunteer participants from Newfoundland.
The curators comment:
The exhibition includes quotations from interviews with participants, together with a comments book in which visitors may record their thoughts and experiences. Having previously toured in Newfoundland, this is the exhibition’s first stop off the island.
This exhibition appears on the main floor of the MSVU library, which is located in the E. Margaret Fulton Centre.
