Memoir Bar

Supported by: FICA

Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) presents Memoir Bar by Thukral and Tagra

Pick a memory and write it down on a piece of paper. Shred it into a fine form and watch it being made into a tile. The act of encapsulating a memory in an object, or solidifying and preserving an emotion forever, forming a library of preserved memories. Using your memory as your currency, you obtain the power to relive it through the object at will. Constructing a large sanctuary of compressed emotion, a memory pavilion.

We would like to view this as a transfer and exchange station to load/drop off and trade with new memories. A station where one deposits emotional currency in to a concrete reserve. Emotional currency is the only medium of exchange relevant to deal in. Keeping transactions as pure and poignant, making you free of surcharge and free from emotional tax.
