Exposing my memories

slate stone, plexiglass, concrete


Place-des-arts of Montreal


Exposing my memories is a sculptural installation about loss, mourning and resilience. In her project, she is interested in memory and emotions linked to loss as well as the potential for reconstruction through this extremely complex experience. In order to question the place of grief in our society, Dam exposes the mourning process of her family after the loss of her father with an installation of three large transparent columns. In which, you can see slate stones stacked one on top of the other. On each stone is engraved a sentence, a word or a poem from the writings of her mother, her sister and her own texts. Through Exposing my memories , Dam invites the public to discover her family's story and invite the public to share their stories and to see grief as an intimate, but also universal experience.
