Indepth Arts News:

"Mnemotech: sense + scape + time + memory"
2002-09-19 until 2002-10-20
Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
Perth, WA, AU

This exhibition's open curatorial premise asked artists to consider memory in relation to place. It's title refers to the forgotten art of mnemotechnics that once used unique physical elements of architectural space and landscape to trigger memory. Where mnemotechnics functioned to assist orators in the delivery of rhetoric and lectures, Mnemotech aims to question our relationship with and memory of the environments and landscapes we inhabit, and to broadly challenge and expand upon the notion of scapes.

These artists explore the possibilities of re-presenting place, documenting, recording and responding to physical memory in numerous disciplines from paint, photography and three-dimensional objects to laserlight, sound and video.
