Forgetting, Remembering, Memorializing

Friday, May 28, 2021- June 25, 2021 Multiday event - 29 days

Wilson Hall Gallery

The method of loci, also known as the memory palace, uses visualizations of familiar spatial environments to enhance the recall of information.

Cecil Eady's work flips this notion. The artist creates works that become a sort of repository for the ephemeral, scraps of images from the nooks and crannies of an empty memory palace. Cecil uses fabric, often recycled from thrift store clothing, as both a surface for drawing and a material to create soft sculpture garments and mixed media works.

The artworks reveal thoughts and moments, broken free from context and story-telling. They become tactile and mysterious, frayed and stitched into something new and beautiful.

Currently on display in the UAH Wilson Hall Gallery through June 10th.

Virtual tour available through June 26th.
