Memory Circus / Part 1 : You forgot that you wanted to forget.
My work is like a memory board. I pile up images that can no longer be contained in my head. Thoughts and memories are being played over and over again, in a space, in a constant mutation that I am creating. An adaptable world that is both present and invisible, concrete and immaterial, like the story I want to tell.
Remember to forget
In my thesis I researched the relation between memory, forgetting and identity. Starting from this definition that explains memory as an ability to exist, who am I if I can no longer remember and records things? While studying philosophers and artists, I challenged myself to forget in order to draw a clear line between myself and what I can remember of myself, and ultimately define myself. Facing my fears of disappearing, I ended my thesis in a short archive of my memories, enlightening the necessity of forgetting.
