Abstract

a single screen video and sound work, and site specific text and sound installation commissioned by RADAR, Loughborough University’s contemporary arts programme. This work uses sound, film and text to explore the dynamic interplay between imagination, emotion and memory. It examines how the fragmentary experience of memory can challenge our capacity to form coherent narratives for the past and explores what happens to a person when they are unable to construct a rational account for a persistent and deeply troubling memory. The work was shown as a solo site-specific art installation at Loughborough University, 3 December 2009 – 23 January 2010, accompanied by an interdisciplinary symposium, Remembering Painful Pasts, January 2010, organized by Emily Keightley and Michael Pickering, Loughborough University, which explored how painful pasts are negotiated and communicated in their capacity disrupt and complicate the process of remembering and the products of memory. A further screening took place at Wimbledon Space, Wimbledon College of Art, curated by Artprojx and WorkinProgress.
