Gail Ritchie’s ‘Making Memory’ project
International artist Gail Ritchie chats about her ‘Making Memory’ project in the GLUE collage show, an IMPACTICA touring exhibition.
Utilising collage as a mind-mapping technique, artist Ritchie recreates her studio wall, with the corner of the gallery transformed into a grid of historical photographs, dates, drawings, notes and timelines. Entitled ‘Making Memory’, Ritchie inserts herself into old family photographs to access memories which are not her own but part of her genetic makeup. They are traditional collages, which have been scanned, then manipulated digitally.
