Salomé Dotter – Fragments choisis
by Salomé Dotter
Playmobil and minesweeper. Bag of marbles and MSN. Malabar and BlackBerry. Facebook and heartbreak. Disco ball and high school wall. Fragments Choisis is a poetic assembly of memories, an attempt at immunity against oblivion. On a shelf, the traces of the passing of time. Twenty-three physical objects have been carefully selected to embody reminiscences from early childhood to adulthood. Visitors are invited to scan whatever they like with their smartphones, to bring a story to life and lead them on an excavation of the virtual space on offer. Through this archaeological process, my intention is to crystallise contemporary nostalgia into a mosaic of shared memories. What fragments would you choose?
