30 May - 15 June 2012
The exhibition of the Greek, London-based artist, Rania Bellou will feature, among others, works from the ‘Memory for Forgetfulness’ series, intricate pencil drawings on multiple layers of tissue paper. Based on the Proustian model of subjective memory as a recreation of the past, the works ‘force’ the return to ‘personal’ memories. Such a return though cannot be equal to a thorough recreation of a past situation but only through a ‘free’ journey among blurred and vague mental images with its intentional forgetfulness”.
