Visiting with Memory

Visiting with Memory is a solo exhibition by Lindsey Bond which draws on an archive of her family’s photographs to explore a multitude of worlds; human and more-than-human, past, present and future, personal and cosmic. It begins with the story of a single family and unfolds into a much larger conversation surrounding decolonization, human relationships, responsibility to one another and to the land we live on.

Bond has described the process of entering into her family’s photo archive to that of entering into the murky waters of the Battle River. Information is obscured, memories shifting and warped, fractures of information at the surface of many unknowable universes. Visiting with Memory is a thoughtful body of work investigating how visiting and memory can inform practises and acts of care taking, thereby giving new meaning to the family photo-archive.
