About to Forget

Berni Searle

About to Forget


The moment in which one is "about to forget" is also the moment in which one remembers. As the title of Berni Searle's exhibition and this accompanying volume suggest, this work looks at the intermediate space of memory where a sense of return and a sense of loss are simultaneously invoked. The process of forgetting entwines both the presence and absence of memory, and, in between, a series of gradually fading after-images of people and events that linger in the mind. This catalogue illustrates the exhibition, provides photographs of the process of making the work and images of source material.
