Elizabeth Peer

Where is memory located and how much of it is personal and how much part of a universal experience? The central concern of my practice is investigating how we retrieve memory and what it means, not only for the artist but for the viewer: a kind of dialogue with the past. People will bring their own experience to this work and examine buried layers, hidden fragments and sudden insights into things forgotten. Family photo albums are my main source material – they record both preservation and decay, lies and truth.

I exhibited recently with the London Group and am now busy working for the LOOP show.
