Museum of Moments (2014)

As an auditory collection, the media installation of the Museum of Moments gathered individual memory fragments of senior citizens. At the same time, filmic portraits of elderly people quietly visualising past moments were shown on twelve large-format screens in a room in the form of a rotunda. The Museum of Moments was a collection of memories in which senior citizens were asked about images from their lives that have shaped them, about images that will remain, their very personal inner photographs. Their silent gaze met that of the audience. In the installation, the subjective spaces of the viewer overlap with those of the narrator, the listening spaces with the perspectives chosen: what is told, what is left out, what is kept silent?
