‘They go far back in our lost distance where what we never had stands waiting’Djuna Barnes, Nightwood

I’ve been thinking a lot about legacy recently.

How to connect across space and time, and how to remember without slipping into sentimentality, nostalgia, or tropes that claim ‘everything was better before’? How to be remembered? What it means to mark time and space with the making of art? And what it might mean to engage in projects of remembrance when our collective present proposes a bleak future’.
