Overwrite (v.): to write over the surface of
OVERWRITING is a group exhibition that delves into issues surrounding memory, its transmission and gaps, and the power plays and personal histories that are mediated through it. It presents the outcome of discussions and research that took place during a module devoted to transcultural memory at Goldsmiths College. The showcased works revolve around issues of language, translation, testimony, witnessing or trauma. Together, they act as a collective installation inviting the viewers to reflect on memory’s many faces.
Creatively engaging with the theoretical framework of memory studies, the works in the exhibition use a variety of media, including photography, text, video and sound. By bringing together the outcomes of our individual research, we wish zo disseminate some of the questions and concepts that we have engaged with throughout the year and provide a forum to share them with the wider public.
