Maps Contemporary Art Space: Friday, 29 February 2008

Angela Malchionno: Works in Progress
Thursday, January 10th - Friday, February 29th, 2008

Please join us Thursday, January 10th, 2008 from 7-10 p.m. for the re-opening of the newly enlarged Maps Contemporary Art Space for the opening of: Angela Malchionno: Works in Progress

"I once stated that memory is nonexistent. What I meant by these words was not that memories are not real. Nor was I denying the existence of past events. Focus on the idea of the here and now: Imagine you are standing in a field composed of your past experiences. As you notice these surrounding experiences they move closer to you and begin to allow a greater clarity of their nature. Thinking in these terms, a past experience enters the present. They cease to be memories. If we understand our existence in the field, these recollections are representations of different historical realities. They do not stand as individual markers along a timeline, or “a constructed objectified timeline.” Instead they are parts of our own historicity, to be recalled and discarded, in the process of constructing our present. (...) My reality is not the singular experience of one person, but instead the fractured vision of a body existing in a world within worlds, where perception blurs and is reassembled. The reassembly is my preoccupation, as I seek to find the materials and means of production and new avenues of representation. "

After the opening Works in Progress will be on view by appointment only. To schedule an appointment call (618)334-4347 or e-mail us.
