January 26 - February 24, 2018

"Flooding" explored the malleable, porous, and transformative nature of memory and "rememory." As Toni Morrison describes in her poignant essay "The Site of Memory,” rememory, like the water of the Mississippi remembering its river beds, is the work of things “forever tr[ying] to get back to where [they were],” and it is often born in “a rush of imagination”—a “flooding.” The four artists, Danièle Dennis, James Allister Sprang, Monika Uchiyama, and Eric Yue, considered such “flooding,” or rememory, in relation to the personal, collective, familial, and cultural. "Flooding" was co-curated by Laurel McLaughlin and Tamir Williams. It was the ninth exhibition in the Incubation Series and ran from January 26th to February 24th, 2018 at AUTOMAT.
