My dad is an obsessive-compulsive collector. Meticulously organised and stored in his 25 square metre apartment in which he resides. His nostalgia-driven order is determined to never risk losing time even once it has past. It is as though he is made up of these objects and without them and their associations he ceases to exist. [Re]collection is an ongoing interrogation of the processes that inform the cultural mausoleum my dad has constructed. In this projects iteration, the boundary between curator and subject becomes less defined. My fathers habitual desire for (object)ive order permeates into the show itself. [Re]collection dissects the curation of memory, personal histories and the pervasive fear of lost time. This project engages with the chemistry that enables the photograph, and how these reactions resist the ungovernability of time.
