12.9.–23.9.2018


Events of the past months have accumulated into gray sediment of time; a meaningful layerings of materials forgotten and lost, ended up unwanted. For us, as a mute remnant of experiences, it is, in all its unnoticeability, a rather vibrant pile connecting anonymous objects and beings, some unknowingly.

And so has the lost light hid in its fixtures the memory it once had seen; mapped the encounters and put them quietly together. There are the early autumn marks collected during an evening walk, that barely fitted into trouser pockets. Now a souvenir in a shoebox. And the exploration made into an unknown moment, which, in a way, started everything again from the beginning.
