In the Max L. Gatov Gallery West, the exhibition “The Extraordinarily Difficult and Impossible Tasks of: Recounting Fading and Altered Memories and Stabilizing Shifting Time”was displayed. This creative art was created by Jane Weibel.
When I first entered the gallery, I saw colorful plaices that resembled playful children. The way Weibel’s work was displayed looked like a playground. All these pastel colors gave off a sensation of welcoming and fun. The artist used many different shapes, such as circles, ovals, rectangles, etc. These shapes created a structure for her art pieces. Her art pieces are made out of ceramic and different fibers. It took about 2 months to created her exhibition pieces.
Weibel wanted her viewers to remember sometime in their childhood where they felt happy. Her exhibition was about childhood memories and the importance of holding on to those memories. She wants people to cherish their childhood memories. Weibel had a relative who past away from alzheimer and she saw how sad it is to lose all those precious memories of one’s past.
I really like the concept of Weibel display because it made me appreciate my childhood memories. Sometimes we are always focus on the present and the future that we tend forget about our memories. I also like the fact she include pictures of her as a child. This made her exhibition more relatable.
