“For me, this exhibition is the first comprehensive – and honest – effort to preserve my experiences, moments of my past and milestones from my life until now.
I don’t know though….
And even at this point I wonder if it is really me who wants to preserve all these things from oblivion or they developed a power of their own and found a way to emerge. Perhaps all these moments, the heavy breaths, the impulses, the fears and thoughts are making one last – ditch – try to stay alive and not be forgotten.
Maybe, after all, their nature is more powerful than my delicate memory …
Maybe they hold on tight to this primitive code of self-preservation.”
