"The only paradise is paradise lost."
Nostalgia presents a social memory practice that is deeply rooted within the present globalizing world. Our nostalgic inclinations led to the archival and memorialization of the foregone, immortalized by images and objects within museums, internet, television and mural paintings. Such mediated memories have supplanted our lived memories as we fascinate over repositories of synthetic recollections that are designed for hasty collective consumption. The exhibition draws inspirations from the current nostalgic impulses of modernity to explore and investigate the numerous issues it entails.
