feltdark: SONARA KRIX (SA) - Fall out - A Frame Tale of the Forgotten #3
Opening: 2nd May
Running: 3rd - 19th
Fall Out – A Frame Tale of the Forgotten #3 is a video work that explores the affect of absence and presence. I have taken the narrative of my mother’s passing, and transcended it into visual thought. The created space metaphorically alludes to the threshold between life and death. Giving rise to emotional presence felt through absence, allowing for affect to work in a reflective form beyond representation. I invite the viewer to ponder their own sense of mortality. The slow motion evokes a haunting stillness amongst the inner chaos. This creates a space for questioning the spatio-temporal rational in direct connections between object and subject and how they can become immanent to matter. Perhaps the presence of affect is evoked in the echoes of memory if we allow ourselves to not only see, but to feel.
Richard Serra states the 'problem becomes one of how to activate memory and make buried material available, to learn how to re-scan what has been rejected or suppressed. If memory is to function recollections must be triggered again and again to rediscover the trail of forgotten footprints.'
