Memory has many forms and uses for an artist. From straight forward documentation to produce future memories - to the reframing of history to challenge our collective memory there is a surprising amount of ways in which memory informs the work and methodology of artists. Realising this I kept the brief as wide open as possible when I asked the artists at Blackhorse Lane Studios for a piece for this show I simply asked for something to do with memory and waited to see what the responses would be.
The work shown then ranges from memories of a very personal nature, to memories of the collective type, to frozen moments of time, to projected futures, the physical act of remembering or forgetting, the memory of non-existent forms, memories of lost artworks, memories of art history and artworks created as the physical embodiment of a memory. The show itself is on for such a short time that it too will quickly become a memory.
