Memory Theatre, by Helen Kirwan

Memory Theatre, Helen Kirwan

Sussex Open artist Helen Kirwan will be screening her film Memory Theatre – inaugurated at the 57th Venice Biennale – in our new auditorium.

Recurring themes in Kirwan’s conceptual practice are memory and memorial and fragment and trace. The idea of the trace as a mark that has barely been made or that may disappear, and asks was something there, and was something left behind?  This involves the pursuit of that which is apparently elusive; not necessarily in order to achieve a goal at the end but to consider the thing that cannot be held.

All works in Sussex Open 2017, including this one, are for available for purchase.
