Descrizione Opera / Biografia

«Show me the fossils of your memories
show me the traces of your geology
let me read the book of your bones
let me learn the map of your skin
let me redraw the map of my skin
let me clean my body’s memory
let me redraft my body’s memory
let me see what I have forgot
tendon’t forget I have to remember
remind me what I have to forget
remember me I have to forget
remind me I have to forget»
[F. S.]
What will happen to one’s own memory when the physical units used to record and store fragments of her existence will become unreadable? Will it become like a latent neuronal engram, reduced to electromagnetic waves emanating from digital relics?
Flora Schwarz, the artist’s alter ego, has experienced erasure and obliteration and ventures into a synaptic journey in order to decrypt and relocate the traces of her own memory. She guides the public along a luminescent labyrinth, drifting amid tangible architectures and their glowing shadows. Her psychological process unfolds with sequences of lines and musical permutations and is echoed by the structure of the visual stream. Will she track, this way, where the corrosion of her own self has begun?
The installation is ephemeral and intangible. In the room there are only music, a female voice and projected images of urban details. The observer’s spatial perception is challenged by the hyper-saturated tones of the video projections. Those are covering the walls like frescos in a chapel. Their floating, vibrating films fill the space with colour reverberation and reveal, thus, the unexpected tangibility of persisting memory.

Author’s Bio
Margherita Pevere (b. 1983) obtained an MFA in Audiovisual Composition at the School of Music and New Technologies at the Conservatory “G. Tartini” in Trieste, Italy, and a Meisterschüler at the Berlin University of the Arts, Department of Art and Media.
Her artistic practice and her work as an independent researcher both focus on the human need to communicate with one another and leave traces of one’s own existence, traces that last possibly beyond human biological mortality. In her work, Margherita has used a wide range of media, including handwriting on paper, video, sound and interactive software.
Her artistic work has been exhibited at CTM Festival (Berlin, D), Film Academy Skopje (Skopje, MK), Dobialab Festival (Dobia di Staranzano, I), Asolo Art Film Festival (Asolo, I), Stazione Rogers (Triest, I), Centro Candiani (Venice, I). Her work as an independent researcher has been presented at the EPARM – European Platform for Artistic Research in Music Conference in Belgrade and the DRHA Conference – Digital Research for the Humanities and the Arts in London.
