Artist’s Book and installation view.
’MemorySlides’ takes its leave in the building of the modern social structure, through an archive that holds photographs of infrastructural construction. Half a century has passed since this expansive era, and history is reformulated, in search of a new place. The personal becomes part of the public domain and the greater objective is dislocated and diluted.
’MemorySlides’ wants to examine aspects of memory, time and space, where these meet and affect each other. Some connections are enhanced, while others are dissolved in a constant flow of overwriting and repetition.
Empty and brimful. Memory slides.
