Middelmann explores the fine line between memory and imagination, using drawing, photos, found maps and objects to explore how our memory constructs and deconstructs in order to tell new stories about ourselves.
On 25 meters of gauze, Naomi Middelmann explored the concept of memory and what we do or do not remember. THis as a result of an artist residency with neuroscientists in Lausanne Switzerland and a residency at the Musée Jenisch in Vevey Switzerland. Memories are reconstructed, assembled and dissasembled.
As part of this exhibit a public talk was given at the CHUV hospital with neuroscientists and artists on March 16th 2022, the piece was then exhibited at the Kunstraum Hochdorf in Luzern and then at the Regionale 23 in Weil Am Rhein, under the curation of Martin Hartung, former assistant curator of the MOMA in NYC.
