At each of the venues where Jeanie Finlay has installed her work, she has overseen the production of a new site specific piece to run simultaneously. For the Hatton Gallery, Newcastle, Jeanie specifically requested the assistance of the Friends of the Hatton Gallery to create a new installation entitled Belonging.

All of the Friends were asked if they would be willing to loan an object from their home, alongside an accompanying 30 word text which would explain why the object was of significance to them. The resulting display includes an eclectic range of items, from an ice pick, to an aloe plant, to an unfinished painting, all of which, for whatever reason, evoke intimate memories and sentiments from their owners.
