Malleable Memory: A Group Exhibition at Aicon Gallery

NEW YORK, NY.- Aicon Gallery New York presents MALLEABLE MEMORY, a group exhibition featuring selected work from a host of international artists. The artists featured in this exhibition ask us to embrace our inherently subjective interpretations of both personal and collective histories through the evolving and illusive device of memory and the complicated ways such informs our understanding of ourselves, our pasts and our futures. Truth is elusive, motivated by self-preservation. In the film Rashomon (1950) by Akira Kurosawa, various eyewitnesses describe their recollections of a violent crime. The accounts and their outcomes vary, leaving viewers to weigh each version against another. In the process the characters’ stories collectively show the nature of truth as unstable and always susceptible to being shaped.
