Memory and Materiality
Memory and Materiality is a visually diverse exhibition from artists Anita Kwong, Kirsten Bresciani and Sibone Heary. Each artist examines the way in which their own personal memories interact with the present. It is through the process of making that these memories materialise. Louise Bourgeois states that “the function of memory is not only to recall, reconstitute or reconcile the past but also to construct and represent the present” (Contemporary Art and Memory ‐ Joan Gibbons).
Kirsten Bresciani’s Memory Rooms are photo‐boxes of personal memory triggers. They explore involuntary sensory activation of past events – episodic memory.
Sibone Heary’s large scale paintings examine the human body’s capacity to store difficult or traumatic memory ‐ the body remembers. They look at the interconnection between mind and body, and the power of the subconscious.
Anita Kwong’s series of photographs, The day after lockdown 5.0, depicts a light, translucent form mid‐flight in the sky. The works arise from the freedom felt the day after that COVID lockdown 2021 ended in Melbourne, Victoria. Anita considers how the image may cue memory ‐ especially collective memories. The delicate fabric works introduce a tactile medium to the inquiry.
