Emily Hornum @ Spectrum Project Space

Event Title: The Substance of Memory.
Participating Artists: Emily Hornum.

Venue: Spectrum Project Space, Edith Cowan University, Building 3.191, 2
Bradford St, Mount Lawley, WA 6050.

Description: An exhibition by interdisciplinary artist Emily Hornum
integrating videos,projections, photomedia and sound installations.
These immersive installations fuse the boundaries of analogue and
digital technologies to illuminate our material engagement and
multi-sensory experience with family archives and to question the influence
this has on the performance of memory.

The Substance of Memory is comprised of a series of installations that will
immerse the audience into a nostalgic dialogue with family archiving
practices. The inherent materiality of traditional and contemporary
technologies alters the way we mediate our bodily engagement and visual
experience with family archives. This creative praxis illuminates the
ephemeral nature of memory and our reliance on external devices to
archive our family memories.

Emily will use Spectrum Project Space as an open studio throughout her
residency between 13 Jan to 27 Jan to refine these installations. The
culminating exhibition will be open from 27 Jan to 8 Feb, with an opening
night held on Thursday 29 Jan at 5pm. An Artist Talk will take place on
Friday 6 Feb at 2pm, to stimulate discussion surrounding new media and its
effect on the family archive and memory, whilst the artist reflexively
engages with her two-year practice-led research.
