“I am my body, I am my memory”, international artists, activists and theorists aiming to create an artistic platform, not only for displaying works of art that includes photography, paintings, installation, performances but it will also become a platform for discussion on important issues related to the human body, and mostly on how memory preserves in itself the buried memories of our suffering as a child, as fetus … and sometimes even that one of our parents and
The body’s memory is what remains when we have forgotten everything.
Memory starts from a scar, from a suffering body, from a sick memory, from a body that is the interstice that connects and separates from everything. Prenatal memory that exists and persists. The fetus has memory, memories exists even after birth.
The fetus listens and learns.
The responsability of a mother to communicate positively with her child, to create and establish a bond, since the beginning, starting inside the belly.
Memory, to know to forget: Alzheimer’s patients are an example.
The memory of psychological abuses, asylums, prisoners, soldiers affected after wars experience.
The memory of the body, the wounds, the accidents, the traumas, the psychological breakdowns, collapses, the illnesses created by wrong emotions and negative thoughts, our incessant authomatic unhealthy habits, the memory related to deformations before and after birth, mutilations, deadly diseases.
A question raises: Is there a memory mode that resists deletion? An indelible and, so to speak, treatable memory?
Art alone can perhaps provide a palpable answer to these questions; at least we can open discussion, we can think about it, we can share and relate.
Because if the body is represented everywhere in the contemporary imagination, and if it constitutes, like memory, a basic material for many contemporary artists, it does not shows its memory but ‘acts’ because it embodies it.
And as much as she does not memorize any image or representation, the body’s memory can only be ‘erased’ by the destruction of the body itself.
