The Memory Appendix

Videoinstallaties over de relatie tussen tijd en herinnering. | Video art that deals with the relationship between time and memory.

‘Time…was by far the most artificial of all our inventions, and in being bound to the planet turning on its own axis was no less arbitrary than would be, say, a calculation based on the growth of trees or the duration required for a piece of limestone to disintegrate, quite apart from the fact that the solar day which we take as our guideline does not provide us any precise measurement, so that in order to reckon time we have to devise an imaginary […]’ - W.G.

De kunstenaars in The Memory Appendix onderzoeken in hun films de relatie tussen tijd en herinnering. Hoe wij, door ons te herinneren, betekenis geven aan onze ervaringen als individu, als partner, als onderdeel van de samenleving. Iedereen ervaart zijn eigen tijd en daardoor zijn eigen waarheid. Een waarheid die nooit absoluut wordt omdat er in herinnering geen zekerheid is. De waarheid fluctueert en wordt aangevuld met verhalen, twijfel, interpretatie of verbeeldingskracht.

Each film in the exhibition The Memory Appendix deals with the relationship between time and memory. How we gather and interpret meaning through the memory of our experiences. As individuals, as partners, as a society. Each occurring in their own sense of time and therefore within their own truth. Yet this truth never becomes absolute, as the memory of certainty never seems final. It is always fluctuating and being appended. With stories, with doubt, with interpretation, with imagination.
