Mapping seeks to organize, explain, render visible. Mapping also abstracts the city into a bird’s-eye, two-dimensional, representation of a physical and temporal experience. Memory distorts, rearranges, focuses, and forgets. Memory also traps our physical and temporal experience of the city into bursts and fragments. The title might also read as a memorial, “in memory” of mapping. All three artists map the world in a different way; reflective of journeys and assimilation; unlike the bird’s-eye map, there exist personal elements and experiences, incidents of narrative, and individual fascination. The two terms contradict themselves and each other, clarifying whilst veiling, distorting and making knowable. They converse with each other and bring up notions of human experience, geography, monuments, journeys, and transformations that come about from re-visiting incidents of narrative.
