The desire to record, preserve memories and tell stories has always been a long-lasting desire of human beings, making us distinctive from other species. How do artists find strategies to immune themselves from the overwhelming stock of images that dominate our daily lives and stay true to their stories?
Revived invited artists using photographs as a point of departure to explore various ways of understanding oneself, understanding the world, exploring unconscious modes of thinking, and imagining an image. Using multiple sources such as archival family photos, documentation, performances, and installations, the artists in the show slowly reveal not just their intimate stories but also put us in positions to question our consumption of images.
The exhibition “Revived” is an event in the framework of International Photography Biennale Photo Hanoi’23
