UNREMEMBERED HISTORIES: Leonie Leivenzon

12 Jan 2023 – 12 Feb 2023

Photographs document evidence of having been there, of the existence of a moment. What happens, however, once the person whose moment is being captured is no longer there? Do the images still hold their memories, or do they become merely another object to be discarded? 

These are some of the questions raised by Unremembered Histories, the latest exhibition project by Leonie Leivenzon, whose practice involves collecting abandoned imagery such as VHS tapes, slides, and photographic prints, altering the material, and merging them with household objects and other familiar forms.
