“It isn’t so astonishing, the number of things that I can remember, as the number of things I can remember that aren’t so.”

“In Memory: Something that happens after then, and before now” is an exhibition that examines the instability of remembering.
What is memory? A mental note. Something that changes and degrades over time. A vague recollection. Something palpable. A taste. A smell. A lie?
Over the period of six weeks, 15 pairs of artists take on the challenge of working together to create a collaborative art installation that uses “remembering” as part of the creative process, and memory (or memories) as material. Artists are encouraged to examine the relationships between memory, documentation and truth, and to explore ways of re-imagining or reinterpreting the past.
In Memory will be held at 717 Queen Street East in an old funeral parlour.
