Memory, memories and the fragility of abstract and non-verbal memory are observed through the artworks at the exhibition. Through paintings, photographs, video and prints, a light is shed on the nature of memory and how non-verbal it can be. Emotional memory flows in colors and shapes. Photographs contain memories and tell stories. A life story is expressed through works of art.

During the exhibition, free workshops will be offered where memory and memories will be worked with by viewing works of art, conducting memory exercises, studying and participating in art-making and through a dialogue. The workshops will take place on 18, 19 and 21 January at 19.00-22.00. The maximum number of participants in each workshop is 6 individuals. Please register here:
