Remembrance + The Moving Image
Are memories like movies? Can they be recorded? Can you capture their yearning, their dread, their jubilation? Featuring spellbinding artworks by leading artists from around the world in ACMI's acclaimed screen gallery, Remembrance reveals how deeply our memories can move us.
The Remembrance + The Moving Image exhibition is about how memory is enacted through the moving image, how the moving image triggers us to take constitutionals through our memories, and how the moving image has the inimitable ability to link us to our primal beings. Featuring spellbinding artworks by leading artists from around the world, Remembrance reveals how deeply our memories can move us.
An unforgettable experience that draws on the visitors' own memories, Remembrance will affect everyone in unique and unexpected ways. Evoking and challenging the intimate memories that sustain and shape our past, present and future, Remembrance immerses the visitor in explorations from the romantic to the confessional, from the spiritual to the taboo.
There is a secret bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting... In existential mathematics, that experience takes the form of two basic equations: the degree of slowness is directly proportional to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting.
The Remembrance cinema program, screening in ACMI's state-of-the-art cinemas, celebrates worldwide cinema culture. Interconnecting screen displays of film sequences and flashbacks will create memory-in-action throughout the spaces of ACMI's three levels.
