“Memory betrays everybody, especially those whom we know best. It is an ally of oblivion, it is an ally of death. It is a fishnet with a very small catch, and with the water gone. You can’t use it to reconstruct anybody, even on paper.” – Joseph Brodsky
With its title taken from a Joseph Brodsky poem, the exhibition ‘Memory Betrays Everybody’ will be staged at The Black Box at the UNSW Art & Design.
Featuring the work of Dublin based photographer and writer Dragana Jurišić and Sydney artist Biljana Jančić, the exhibition will present video, projections, photography and installation. Grab a set of wireless headphones at the entrance and be swept away by the audio visuals of Dragana Jurišić’s work, ‘I Remember’. Join me for opening drinks on Thursday the 30th of May from 5-8pm. The show runs from Tuesday the 28 th May to Saturday the 1st of June.
