Event (Online): Memory as Practice with Jean Marie Casbarian – Transart Institute Public Talk

At the end of every month, the Transart Institute offers a free opportunity to listen to artists speak about their work and research.

The next free session is coming up Sunday, February 28 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm MST with Jean Marie Casbarian.

Description of talk:

Memory as Practice lies in the reinterpretation of memories and the loss and longing that occurs in the process of trying to reconstruct them. In my attempts to interrogate the source of my own memory, I listen for the gaps, sometimes leaving them be as fragments. Other times, I might fill them in with the possibility of illusion and fiction, questioning the philosophy and physics of time and space. I make no distinction between my life and my artistic practice. The two intersect and collide, eventually landing in a place of remembrance through direct experience. It’s during these more subtle moments that the memories ricochet back, dissolving into the hallucinations of something barely recognized.
