Excerpt from "Mapping a Museum's Collection with Memory," by Ben Valentine in Hyperallergic, May 27, 2014
Re:depiction was an audio and visual intervention in the collection, in which Hughen/Starkweather asked staff to recall from memory works on display. Using those memories as inspiration, the duo created large, semiabstract works on paper, which were hung like scrolls in the museum's main staircase. ... How does memory make an artwork? How do our relationships with certain pieces define our perceptions of them? Do any two people actually see and feel the same way before the same work of art? These are the important questions that Re:depiction both raised and complicated.
