This exhibition looks into the practices of artists as a means to record and archive ideas, emotions and experiences. The artist takes on the roles of the observer and the historian simultaneously. Their own experiences therefore define the editing of this particular archive.
Archives, as spaces of and catalysts for memory play a central role in society’s means of remembering.
In creating these archival documents artists are giving form to their own imagined realities. These ‘imagined realities’ may or may not have existed but are depicted in these visual narratives of grief, loss, joy and commemoration.
