An Installation by Nancy Sayavong and Gabriella Willenz
Friday, October 8th-October 31,2021
Monuments of Memory is a two-person exhibition by Gabriella Willenz and Nancy Sayavong consisting of two separate installations. It reworks non-heroic and mundane elements - the architectural structure as well as interior objects - of the home. As the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard asserts in Poetics of Space “the more securely [memories] are fixed in space, the sounder they are.” A sense of a home provides us with an anchor, whether physical or conceptual, to which we attach our stories forming a seemingly coherent self.
