Lacunae continues the research of a previous project, The Keeper
, which investigates on how images can forge the memory, but now presenting a series of works dealing with oblivion as its core subject.
Oblivion, understood within the processes related to memory, is the failure
to retrieve a memory—that is, information —which is stored in the mind
and cannot be recovered. But forgetting can also occur through the fading
of a stimulus that is never requested, and as the result of interference
caused between new and consolidated stimuli. From these different
notions regarding oblivion and its implications, these works seek to awaken
reflections on memory, oblivion and our ways of relating to and in a world
mediated by images.
The project brings together eleven works on this topic, in different media, showed at Luis Adelantado Valencia
