FOCUS Photography Festival
A FOCUS on Learning exhibition, curated by Andrea Fernandes
Like photographs that often capture a moment or a series of moments, memory too is often a combination of fragments of information and emotions – smells, sounds, sights. And both, so inherently personal are yet so strongly shared. In this exhibition, individual and collective memory will be explored through people, objects and events using archives, staged imagery and personal accounts while collective memory will be examined through connecting and collecting the memories of people who have lived a shared experience. While some of the work engages in the relationship between dreams and memory, others depict the discomforting juxtapositions in dreams using techniques influenced by the surrealist movement.
Photographs capture a moment before it becomes the past. In this exhibition, the students of école intuit.lab bring the past into these moments. With varied explorations on the theme of memory, from personal reminiscences to surreal interpretations of dreams, the students take us through the what and how bringing in layers of intimacy, performance and cognition.
