The artist talk event on Sunday at 2 pm was attended by many despite the fine weather. The talk was amazingly interesting. The dialogue between the artists was followed by a Q&A and everyone enjoyed the exchanges between the artists and the audience about reality, perception and the unreliability and imperfection of our memories.

 


“Memory of Place” Memory Wall

Memory of Place is a show focusing on our experience of a place to which we have been emotionally attached. We don’t realize the importance of that experience at the time when it happens. It is only later in the future when we are reminded of it through a sensory stimulant such as a taste, smell, sight, sound or touch that we are filled with feelings of nostalgia, longing and even sadness for a cherished moment and a treasured place that is no longer at reach. To make the show interactive and accentuate the importance of memories in this show, we created a wall in the gallery titled “Memories of Places…”. Through this wall, we encourage visitors to share their memories of a special place or a unique moment with each other.
