Faded but not forgotten
Hagar Cygler – Her work deals with personal memory and history through unique combinations of materials and objects that are personal or anonymous. A large part of her work is the collection and historical aspect of the actual materials and their examination as part of the cultural memory archive. In her lecture she will focus on a few projects based on deserted materials which she sorted and reorganized to tell a new story.
