What does Ephemera mean?
The word derives from the Greek “ephemeros”, meaning "lasting only one day, short-lived".
They are things that exist, are used or enjoyed for only a short time. Ephemeral things can be
collectable items that are originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.
What is Ephemeral Art?
In Art, Ephmera can mean a number of things when created to represent a connection to place,
people, spirituality, the physical and to cultural identity. There are many forms of ephemeral art,
from sculpture to performance, but the term is usually used to describe a work of art that only occurs once,
it is not usually designed to embody any lasting object to be shown in a museum or gallery.
The 5 Lands Walk "Ephemera" exhibition incorporates:
