“Since undertaking the House Clearance event at the end of the Home-Maker tour it’s made me think about the personal investment and sentimental value I give objects in my own home. I was suprisingly upset when I waved off the van full of objects that I had selected for the touring show. My consolation was that I didn’t need the object to maintain the memory and after the initial sadness, I felt an overwhelming feeling of relief and liberation. I no longer had to think and worry about all this stuff that I was responsible for. I put 75 items up on ebay and Greenmetropolis and slowly the clutter in my house is reducing, very slowly. With this in mind I developed Home Clearance for Sidehow. I’m interested to see what sells, what doesn’t and whether the sentimental provenance described will add any value or if it will put potential buyers off who don’t want to consider the item’s previous life.” Jeanie Finlay
