Photo prints hang from the wooden structure of the house. This installation is dedicated to memory. The pictorial representation is as diffuse and impalpable as rememberance and yet a crisp and clear documentation of a past event.
The installation points to the reminiscence of a dream in a hazy fog.The photos show hands through which a lavender, shapeless mass flows. The mass is like memory and like time: not tangible, nothing to really hold on to - as it runs out of the hands and through them.
Simultaneously, the aesthetics of the slime awakes a desire and longing to play with the material like with the memory. Viscous material is modeled like memory to become amorphous through time.
Many drops, like a stalactite cave of memories. Something without a trace. A memory of material and a craving for consistency. And the possibility to walk through it like through trees or dancers in the woods.
''The mucus that runs through my hands like time and memory I can not grab.
ON SOMETHING FLOATY ON SOMETHING SOFT ON SOMETHING TRANSPARENT LIKE A MEMORY IN A ROOM'' Klara Kayser
The modeling of a thought or the letting go of a stream of consciousness. THE MEMORY AS AMORPHIC MASS.
