The title Memory Palace refers to a mnemonic method in which you place information you want to remember in specific locations or rooms, such as in an imaginary house or a palace. When navigating your own memory palace, you visit different rooms that contain certain types of information, connecting visual imagery of locations to memories, so one reminds you of the other. Much of the work in this exhibition refers to the significance of domestic built environments and the influence these have on our sense of connection and safety, aspirations, childhood and aging, comfort and safety, identity, and memory.
