“The proposal of—may amnesia scratch our membrane—is to create an opportunity to bring recent artistic production from artists active in the local community, reaffirming the gallery space as a sit for exchange and a place to regroup. A myriad of different and even contradictory discourses are constantly produced and coexist in the art world. As individuals we may no longer need the other to show us the meaning of our experience, as we did when we were infants; but if we are to be able not only to construct narratives, but also to be aware of the narratives we construct, we do need to believe that we are known by the other. We see a necessity to recontextualize the historical narrative, rather than deconstruct it. Deconstruction gravitates into oblivion, while recontextualization towards attention. Thus, the title becomes ironic, assuming amnesia as a category for objectivity in the context of experiential economics, the emergence of new technologies which reshape the function of our membrane, or the requirements of interconnectivity ann digital networks. How to provoke amnesia, when it’s not one’s self’s trait?”
– excerpt from Horațiu Lipot’s curatorial text
