Presence & Absence

Installation space designed by Isabella Friis with the work of Joel Suganth

By Joel Suganth

How do you remember a place, an event, an experience?
How does a place remember a person, an object, an event?
Can memory exist on its own?
Can we imagine the existence of an entity with memories of life here that is not attached to human consciousness?
Can our collective memories exist without us?
What happens when memories are detached from consciousness.
