Fields of Memory

2016, Two-channel video installation, sound, color
A collaborative work by Ivetta Kang, Matthew Wolkow, and Kevin Park

Fields of Memory is an attempt to visualize how personal memories ‘are’ in the passage of time.
The visual realm of personal memories - constituted of images from each artist’s personal archives, presented with narrations in their respective mother tongues (English, French, and Korean) - is disrupted by the repeated, powerful action of the metallic pounding used in construction. Yet, the archived memories ultimately becomes alive within the audiences’ nowness, experiencing the physical impacts of the piece - glitched images and audiovisual pounding.
