In>visible Traces

Exhibition curated by Paula Naughton, Judy Goldhill and Francesca Galeazzi.

Set within the fascinating walls of the Old Boys Club in Dalston, we invited the artists to explore the notion of ‘locational memory’, of the relationship with physical spaces that translate into emotional journeys.

The theme of the exhibition is both invisible and visible traces. The artists make a connecting link between the work of the known and unknown. The recording of an experience within a lived space during a specific time frame is visualized. The documentation of memory is what these artists are working with. Their images activate seeing before meaning is extracted whereby the image within lies between the imagination and the real. At what point do we see and recognize a trace? “In>visible Traces” is about the logic of presenting or making visible according to the subjective mental image in terms of phenomenology of the soul.

All artists were asked to respond to the following quote:
“Each of us exists in a visceral world. We are wrapped within a simultaneity of physical experience; our perceptions of sound, light, temperature, touch; our response to the sense of danger or the expression of a desire become memory; entering into a shifting fabric of what we have known. The specifity of a particular site/location is a woven container of associations. ..a fluid mix of the physical, emotional, personal, social and political. This fabric is non-linear; extending inward and out. The present is written on inhabitant; all of us containers ourselves.”
