A Day In The Life Of Memories

I’ve been meaning to post this. I’m going to do something a bit different and tell you a bit of my school life, or rather, share with you an amazing upcoming artist.

IMG_20131003_170941Back in October, I had the pleasure of attending my classmate’s, Ace Vu, gallery exhibition titled A Day In The Life Of Memories, or #Memories for short. This beautiful installation triggers all the senses, and evokes a sense of nostalgia as one walks into the gallery. The centerpiece is hauntingly exquisite: two wooden chairs and a hat sitting on one, vintage trinkets and dried bouquet of roses placed on a wooden table, and pieces of paper hanging above by wooden clips and string. Aside from the aromatic smell of coffee pervading the room that reminded me of a cafe, the core of the gallery transcends to the memories of those whom we cherish and/or miss, whether they are not of this world anymore or simply in another city. Each piece of floating paper contains a memory of a loved one (or two). The words I write cannot describe how emotional it is standing there and reading some of the notes: the remorse, the happiness, the pain…

Below are some photos I took of the gallery, and hopefully, they capture the essence of the installation.
