MEMORY PALACE

2017-2027

 

YEAR 5 / 2021

'Memory Palace' is a contemporary multi-disciplinary, time-based project by Sim Luttin that explores the significance of capturing moments and handmaking objects when we live in a complex, globalised time.

Mass production and the ubiquitous uploading of images creates endless clutter and visual noise in the physical and digital world. This project is a conscious intervention that aims to quietly pause, connect, document, and reflect ordinary daily moments. By doing so, Sim will imbue personal meaning into the images and objects, tracing time and revealing aspects of the human condition. The exploration will result in ten yearlong series' of images that will inform the creation of ten collections of handmade objects. The final presentation will culminate in idiosyncratic and tangible 'memory palaces' that span one decade of one person's lived moments in time.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I create and exhibit art. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. I acknowledge that I work and live on country on which Members and Elders of The Wurundjeri people and their forebears have been custodians for many centuries and on which Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. I acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
