If I Don’t Remember This, Nobody Will by Zoë Robertson
A stamped text gradually disappears, signifying the act of remembering and how memories fade. The repeated phrase raises questions about the responsibility and burden of remembering and legacy, inspired by grief and loss. When is remembering a burden; when is forgetting a good thing?
The piece is made from biodegradable elements – individual letters are carved from mushroom and stamped with beetroot juice – so that, like a memory, the physical piece itself will also fade.
