Elly Heise Looking Back

Presented by IC Contemporary, Looking Back considers how imaginative memory can be understood as a subconscious process where one’s mind fills in memory gaps in the absence of external verification. This is demonstrated through Heise’s photographic reimagination and navigation of her family archives.

Looking Back flirts with spatial engagement and the interpretation of surrealist realms as a membrane between the physical world and the imaginative. These intersecting realms structure the show, asking audiences to reflect on the spaces where memories and extensions of one’s self reside.

Paired with an original soundscape, visitors virtually immerse into a hypnotic realm to investigate personal spatial analysis.
