A trifling piece of art will soon go on display at a Preston landmark.
Olivia Keith from Brindle, near Chorley, will be leading a 40 minute art display on top of the Harris Flights, at the Harris Museum, where gallons of jelly will be compared to glass.
The artist wants to draw attention to the museum’s collection of 2,700 scent bottles, as well as smells, sounds and movement.
She said: “Rather than being a static thing, it will be a moving piece. Jelly is rather poetic in terms of movement and shape.
“I’ve also found a nice parallel between jelly and glass, such as when you hold it to the light, you can see all the lovely colours.
“You also melt and cut both jelly and glass, and mould it how you want.”
During the experiment, different jellies will be brought onto the stage - including one made out of a gallon of liquid and held in a large fish kettle.
Olivia and two helpers will dismantle the jellies, exposing different layers and a range of different smells, such as spicy Bay Rum and orange pomander.
They will be cut into shapes to resemble a table of scent bottles - presented next to the real things.
Olivia added: “There will be educational stuff in there, but it will not be a lecture. Jelly is something that makes everybody giggle, and there is an amazing sound when you flop it out. Of course there’s always something a bit unknown about it too.”
Olivia has previously held a Jelly Jamboree at Cuerden Valley Park, and has used it as medium of expression for residents of Sue Ryder Care in Bamber Bridge.
The latest, self-funded performance is at 3pm on Saturday, September 14.
