Quote


"Maybe the problem today is that memory is no longer a question of nostalgic reveries into one's past triggered by a single photograph, a smell, or a taste. Proust's tea with Madeleine has been displaced by the internet where memory is now located in cloud servers, no longer grounded in one place or even in one's mind but adrift on the ether of digital bandwidth."

About

“Andro Wekua’s installations, paintings, works on paper, which incorporate collage, pencil, and pen on photocopies, including his object for Parkett “Black Sea Lamp”, often refer to the displacement of refugees, and his own memories growing up in war-torn Georgia.” -Artspace
