Artist: Silke Xenia Juul, 2019
Title: In Memor.i.am
In Memor.i.am is a method for laying to rest past, present and future possible selves, who cannot, have never or will never come into existence. Dwelling on absent selves, the body transforms from a shell of flesh and bones to a mutation of fleeing existences. While past and future selves are commemorated, the awareness still remains that the present selves become increasingly dispersed, as they morph into porous multiplications of another. During the ceremony, the artist mourns her selves transferring her own voice through handmade vessels as she pays tribute to unreached potentialities with continuous ceremonial singing and acts of metaphysical remembrance.
And as I kiss myselves goodbye, we wonder whose lips are mine. — at Noda Estudio.
