Ký u/́c – Memento by Simone Hoang
Only signed copies available
“Ký ức is Vietnamese for memory, or rather the flaws of memory.
For a long time Hoang has been fascinated by the workings of the mind: how it adds but also omits elements. In her work she tries to (re)construct and capture memories. She lets herself be guided by sensory perceptions. This series shows the malleability of memory. As clear and detailed as these memories feel, Hoang finds they are surprisingly inaccurate. She thinks it’s impossible for humans to bring memories to mind without altering them in some way. We tend to replay them in our minds, having the potential to alter them with each repetition.”
