Memory of a Space: Series III
Memory of a Space
Jessie Chaney’s ongoing series Memories of a Space seems to be a portent of our current global crises. Abandoned buildings in desolate locations now may lure us as potential safe havens, if only we hadn’t already trashed them. Graffiti proclaiming ‘where love lives’, crudely updated to ‘where love lived’, is a cautionary quip for all of us. Another wall bears the question ‘looking for home?’, a query that encapsulates a sense of uncertainly that is shared across countries, borders and cultures. Where do we turn for a safe haven in times of trouble; times in which we are dealing with threats to humanity that are not defined by language or politics?
