Memoirs: Transcribing LossSeptember 15, 2000 - September 15, 2000
Memoirs: Transcribing Loss features photography, installation and video works by contemporary artists who explore the subjects of nostalgia, memory and loss. Artists Christian Boltanski, Mary Kavanagh, Arnaud Maggs, Betty Goodwin and Patrick Traer investigate personal and collective history, ritual and cultural experiences. The artists employ the histories of minimalism and conceptual art in their approach to their materials and subject matter. The result is a powerful and ambiguous product, which leaves room for the inscriptions of various personal, social and cultural experiences.
