cut / mixed / when it was now / your / my / memory / con stantly manipulated / by myself / by an external community  / audience / individual / memory constructed from my own  memories / without the influence of someone sharing mo ments with me / not shaped by someone else’s experiences /  imposed me / my experiences / not only mine / my very auto nomous memory / does not resemble a mess / reminds me /  my private narrative 

Working with visual material from a private archive, the artist  edits and reorganizes live material in the gallery, using shared  space and experiences that help shape new narratives. Interested in various notions of memory, in particular collective and individual dialogue, she leaves traces of each video  performance in the gallery space after each week.
