Manal AlDowayan | And I, Will I Forget?

February 4th 2016


Cuadro Gallery invites you to the opening of Manal AlDowayan's solo show titled "And I, Will I Forget?" A collection inspired from a box of Kodachrome slides shot between 1962 and 1973 in Saudi Arabia and USA. Manal inherited these images as a child and has been playing with them her whole life. In this project she question; what happens to a memory that has no story? Manal uses these images to retell her story through someone else’s memories. She builds an imagined connection to the imagery found in the box of slides. Exploring themes of migration, separation, abandonment, and coming of age. "I have a fear of forgetting. I have a fear of being forgotten. And I, will I forget?"
