Holly Davey - The Conversation

Preview 10 November 2017

11 November 2017 - 3 February 2018

A buff foolscap folder is the starting point for this exhibition, a record of a journey. Inherited by the artist, the folder contains tiny fragments of a lifetime. A seemingly random collection of objects: postcards, photographs, scraps of paper, personal notes, an art gallery catalogue, a magazine article, a paper bag as well as the gaps and pauses that connect them.

This body of work explores our relationship with archive and how our lives can be interpreted through these markers. This loose collection of objects forms a sense of ourselves; creating a staged familiarity that make our narrative comfortable and complete.

Where object, memory and imagination come together to build this story, neither truth nor fiction, the remembering becomes the lived present. Reality shifts under the researchers scrutiny of archives, indexes and searches and the hunt begins to make the lost or forgotten visible.

Supported by Swansea College of Art, University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
