People think that memory is an objective record of what has happened. It is, however, a subjective construct of one’s consciousness. While emotions are the most enhancing element constructing memory, the factor of time is what makes it less accurate and more subjective. Two young artists by combining portraits with records of found objects create their reflection of natural disaster on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. Curator Michaela Bosáková.
