The exhibition presents a selection of
artists who, through careful and sensitive
use of media, express to their audience an
atmosphere of memories, dreams, tales and
forgotten sentiments. This group of artists
have variously sought to describe narratives
of the past drawn out through the
processes of collecting lost photographs
and aural histories, referencing literature
and exploring architecture. Plotting places
and situating ideas in timeless contexts, the
artists, through drawing, stitching, folding,
and printing impressions, are laying their
individual concerns out before the viewer.
The work in the exhibition seeks to
represent a set of personal significances
around another time or place or people.
Many of the artists use retrospective
imagery and references to tell us something
about contemporary living.
In a show that demonstrates how
ambitious themes and subjects can be told
through delicate and quiet methods, the
artists here describe a rich and varied
collective pictorial memory.
