The Fate of Things: Memory Objects and Art
more_vert
close

A persons memories are comprised of recollections of their own experiences, and those that they have inherited through photographs, home videos and family storytelling.

First-hand memories of traumatic experiences are passed down not only in visual and oral ways, but in the raising of the next generation, through habits and mannerisms.

Children and grandchildren of survivors of trauma often live with both the burden and the duty of remembering experiences that were not their own, from a time when they were not alive. Everybody is a product of those who came before; their experiences, their hardships, ambitions and achievements.

In The Fate of Things: Memory Objects and Art, 2 Australian-born artists remember their families Holocaust experiences through inherited objects, remnants and relics.

For this exhibition, Anne Zahalka and Sylvia Griffin have undertaken a process of self-discovery by imbuing tangible symbols of their family histories with personal interpretations of their second-hand traumatic memories.

Through video, photography, assemblage, sculpture and textiles, the artists memorialise lost family members never met, particularly female predecessors, to trace who they are today and how their characters have been formed over time.

Starts: 12:00 am
Ends: 12:00 am
