The Traces That Remain explores the after-effects. The exhibition asks: what reverberating repercussions remain in the body and mind following significant events that have affected us? Are we the only ones affected? How do these traces manifest over the course of a minute, a year, a lifetime? Are they always obvious, or do they slip into the subconscious in the form of memories and nightmares? Do they always eventually become experience, resilience? Addressing these questions, this exhibition brings together artists who reflect on what lingers after the fact/the effect.
Shaya Ishaq introduces these questions through her interest in the liminality of rites of passage; Po B K Lomami fashions an intimate experiment to interrogate how grief remains; Zinnia Naqvi exposes the scars left by institutions that choose not to support visible minorities; and Lan Florence Yee probes the painful consequences that follow difficult situations. On top of this, The Traces That Remain also explores the form archives can take, as well as who and what is remembered.
