Imperfect Recall brings together a group of artists exploring memories as trace and fragment. Working in a variety of media, all ten artists map the rich and unsteady ground between past and present; history and recollection. Whether drawing on found material, as in the case of Ceuppens, Reid, Sirbu, Smith, and White or producing false memories from the familiar outlines of 1960s nostalgia, like House, the works question simple notions of recollection and feeling for the past. Russell and Culley construct works that, in different ways, fix the evanescent traces of memory in forms that thus are inherently distorted. Uglow and Bainbridge work through layers of media to produce works that evoke the rudimentary, uncanny landscapes of the unconscious.
