The Owl and the Pussycat – Eidetic Memory: Works by Matthew Fuller
Opening Night Thursday 24 February 2011, 6-9pm Exhibition runs 24 February – 12 March 2011
‘Eidetic Memory’ is Matthew Fullers debut exhibition. A series of portraits taken in the day to day workings of his life.
Eidetic memory is the ability to recall images, objects, or scenes in extreme abundance and clarity – as if they were present and actually visible. No wonder, then, that it is most commonly referred to as ‘photographic’ memory.
Photographs are essential to our memory. They are the bricks from which we build history, and our sense of self; they are the proof we grew and lived and found things in the world. They also serve, when memory fails – or craves for more – as proxies for the people we love.
These images are not artworks, but memories; memories of the beautiful, hilarious people in them, and of some distant, lovely moment we spent together.
The Owl and the Pussycat 34 Swan St Richmond, Victoria.
