Devon Johnson Noms De Pays

  On view from March 7 to March 21, 2014

I embrace the indiscriminant decay of that relentless conqueror: time, which lays waste to the physical world, as well as to our memories of places. The harder we try to fight it, the more distorted our memory becomes; we only remember the last time we remembered (something that perhaps never was). I am not saddened by the fabricated nature of memory because every time I look to the past I create a new story in my mind. I can only hope that this tale will get better with time.
Each shard of memory has the potential to bring up countless narratives, yet unknown. Where they begin hardly matters—it is where they can make the mind go. Time is the ultimate leveler, something from which nothing ever escapes.
