Memory remains

22 - 28 August 2013


Aleksandra Warchol, a final year student at the University of Bedfordshire, presents a photography and film installation exhibition. The photographs, which explore childhood memories, nostalgia and the idea of place, are presented as prints and slides viewed through a vintage stereo slide viewer.

 

To create the work Warchol photographs real childhood snapshots from Poland against a backdrop of Houghton Regis, the artist’s new home in the UK. In this way, the photographs attempt to create new ‘fake memories’ in an attempt to overcome the sense of displacement experienced from living in a new location.

 

Alongside this, the film work Public Footpath, filmed on mobile phones and presented on two projectors, takes the viewer on a journey through urban and rural spaces.
