The End (For Now)
Exhibition : Thursday 18 August - Saturday 20 August
Open 11am - 5pm Thur/Fri/Sat
Opening Event : Friday 19 August, 6pm-9pm
The End (For Now) explores not only a personal passing of time, but a journey through technology and mediums of storytelling. The works expand a film archive that has developed over decades from a revisited collection of individual and shared intimate family memories.
The photographic stills are augmented through c-type prints, digitally printed fabric, audio soundscape and Generative Poetry Intervention. The double media filter enhances the 8mm and VHS grain captured in the photographs; the black borders, which give no sense of spatial placement, push the images further into the past. While abstracted memories surface as captured stills in print show family life with intimate recollection.
