Material Memory: Bodies, Things & Space
Texas Tech School of Art
SOA Satellite Gallery | CASP

Friday, September 1st
6 – 9pm

This exhibition showcases the creative and scholarly research of MAE students. Participants explored material memory as a situated and collective practice with, through, and about material culture and the land. Remembering occurs in the in-between space that emerges when bodies, things, and environments conflate through interactive relations and interdisciplinarity. Memory does not reproduce meanings; it (re)constructs them. This required participants to approach art as sensation: a form of encounter, a trigger to combine, connect, and remember. When memory operates through encounter it can be provisional, malleable, and contingent. In this framework, art is a more-than-representational interweaving of culture and nature, sensation and signification, matter and how it matters, the material and the semiotic.
