"THE WHITE ALBUM"

 

Usually, our intentions are not clear. Everyone believes that what they do today will affect their future, but not many feel that they can change the past.

 

“The White Album” is a family of three art objects addressing the opaque and duplicitous nature of memory and the frustration of representation. How comfortable are we with gaps in our knowledge - or missing parts of our lives? It’s clear we fill in the blank spaces with what we have on hand - whether that works or not is fodder for discussion. But what we do know is that where there is love there is pain.
