The Seat of Memory
For the past four years - when not engaged in artistic pursuits - I have worked in department stores, launching new fragrances and working to promote particular perfumes. This industry inspired The Seat of Memory.
When I walk through a department a store I see all the things I can’t have.
I am swept away by the romance of the surroundings, and imagine sharing my life with the desirable objects on proud display. In truth, my head knows my life would still be the same, but still heart says something different.
The Seat of Memory explores the department store as a site for regret, disappointment and love lost.
