On memory

Collaboration between Antoni Karwowski and Márcio Carvalho Co-LAB Editions, Savvy Comtemporary, Berlin 2011

Both artists embrace memory as on of their primary topics for the development and understanding of their artistic practices. An ongoing process of perceiving fragments situated in many different chronological pasts of their lives, allow these 2 artists to produce artistic work in relation to the intimacy of their own memories.

In one side Antoni Karwowski question identity as a danger blurring in his surrounding reality, as a result of "memory decay", on the other side Márcio Carvalho believe that the blur produced by the capacity of forgetting details, of past events, is the key point for memories to become new living material in a constant transformation from past into present.
