Am I the caretaker for their memory?
I will embark on a fictional-historical investigation of the context in which my grandmothers lived and the memory that their personal objects carry. During the process I plan to get enriched with the thought experiments: through relevant reading material, discussions, writing, and arranging part of the material in my collections in the gallery or project room.
I would like to conduct the research from forgetting to remembering, digging the concept of ‘remembrance’ out of the ruins as the fictional creation that remains uncertain or impossible to prove true.
