A Certain Capacity For Occupying Space

February 18, 2010

A Certain Capacity For Occupying Space is the title of my project I am working on whilst being the artist in residence at Kunsthuis SYB in Friesland.

During my residency I focus on issues concerning how acts of memory produce reality by their very performance and utterance. How do acts and recalls produce cultural memory through their mediation and aestheticization. One of my main questions is: Does the medium make the memory?
