“Hair like endless reeds growing from her head
She ran into the forest
Words woven into endless bodies”
Wooden Logs Floating Down the River by Mariana Hahn is an invitation to a series of recursive gestures and recitations embroiled into an incantatory litany. One remaining hair as catalyst of history or a billion hair woven into threads carrying ancient memories, artemisia and its protective virtues accompanying mothers and travelers on their path, a primary forest and the uncanny sense of the self are some of the components present in the exhibition. Elements such as copper, salt, herbs and vocals are becoming the protagonists, organized in a way to translate the information that were once inscribed in the body. Memory supports and knowledge transmission channels are discussed here through this evolving piece as often in Mariana Hahn’s work and research. About construction and erosion of memory, the exhibition unrolls and transforms into an archiving process.
