The Center for Photography at Woodstock is pleased to present the exhibition Re-membrance of the Remembrance featuring artist Hye-Ryoung Min.
“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it,” Gabriel García Márquez wrote in his autobiography. Artist Hye-Ryoung Min introduces his words as an invitation to re-experience a past of a different time and different place. Specifically, her photographic series, Re-membrance of the Remembrance, revisits a past of her younger self in the form of seventy meticulously written diaries, and re-imagines this past through the eyes of adult maturity.
These contemplative explorations, captured during a residency at the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, draw her inwards while also anchoring her within the tactile experience of her rustic settings. The resulting images are quiet musings that suggest a whirlwind tour of her life, only to see her stand firmly in the present. Respectfully acknowledging her younger view points, she resists their siren call. Here, memory serves as seed to new beginnings.
