I made a visual text piece as my contribution to the World Book Night 2023 project organised and curated by Sarah Bodman and Linda Parr. ‘i remember / i don’t remember’ responds to the call using a sequence of childhood memories and found and generated text. The colours relate to the stories in the sequence.
For World Book Night 2023, WBN United Artists invited people via an open call, to read one or all of the following texts, and consider how they might represent a memory that could be used to create a shared experience, a coming together of voices from the past and present. I Remember by Joe Brainard / I Remember (Je me souviens) by Georges Perec / I Remember, I Remember by Mary Ruefle. 112 contributions were sent from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Sweden, UK, USA.
The exhibition will be on show at Bower Ashton Library, UWE Bristol, UK from 20th April – 30th June 2023, and Hong Kong Design Institute from late July – end of Sept 2023. You can view all the works received on the Instagram gallery put together by Linda Parr. WBN 2023 is curated and organised by Sarah Bodman and Linda Parr. The exhibition at Hong Kong Design Institute is organised by Jessica Ho Yuk Ching.
