Paper Memories Exhibition
The small green leather case was kept in a cupboard in mum and dad's bedroom. Inside were their old analogue snapshots and albums: paper memories. As a child they transported me to another era, to a time when my parents' were young. I made up stories about them; I still do.
Working with my late parents' archive the exhibition incorporates two conceptually distinct but connected series; Hireth and Frozen (in time). It explores abstract concepts; temporality, materiality, love, loss and longing.
Mum and dad's photographs are just ordinary snaps but they signify something different now.
