About the exhibition
Memory is the thread that weaves these portraits together. One of the most fascinating and intriguing aspects of our psyche, memory is constantly being measured in relation to the truth. How “accurately” do we remember something? But ultimately there is truth to our memories. Virginia Woolf writes: “Truth differs from accuracy; truth requires a merging of observation and imagination.” It is Virginia Woolf’s notion of truth — the remembered, heard, seen and interpreted — that these portraits embody.
