“Echoic”, is a result from a long-term reflection about memory and space. About my relationship with the spaces I lived in and its inner memories. Those memories, subsisted in a plurality of matters: since in objects, in photographs or in documents. Either, in the memory that I had from the houses area and the floor plan drawn.
In this exhibition a new sensory memory is added: an echoic memory made of sounds which inhabit objects. A sensory memory which records specific auditory informations. For over 20 years, I was revisiting the same region although different beaches. However, with the same involuntary act of collecting shells. With the innocent intention and believe of bringing a small piece of the ocean to home. This was not a random souvenir. It was created by Nature and it preserves all of its characteristics. It preserves a sound from its habitat, which is audible when it is close to the ear. At that point, the two subcategories of sensory memory – the iconic and the echoic – intersect."
