Last year, I realised that my memory was starting to go. I also noticed that my mother was starting to forget things with big gaps in her memory. “Easily Forgotten Things” is a photographic show that transforms memories and, like forgetfulness, invents other, new ones.
A brief history of Spain in the second half of the twentieth century. A card game turned into a show.
Around a small table, in an intimate, salon setting, a powerful sequence of close-up sensory experiences invokes old memories and invents new ones. Through this miscellany of sights and sounds, objects and photos, a fascinating story unfolds in a powerful sequence exploring memory and identity. Like a magician, or medium at a séance, Xavier Bobés manipulates both past and future.
If you could choose just one photo from your life, which one would you choose?
The show is aimed for adults, and performed in English.
