Artist Huang Chih-Cheng has been paying attention to people’s relationship with memories. In his Memo 3, he uses a piece of second-hand clothing to ponder the meaning of memory through life’s passage. The main focus is an upper garment, laid out flat. Several photos transferred onto silver foil are sewn into the right side of the garment with overlong, randomly scattered stitches. The surface layer is covered with layers of silver and aluminum foil, and Huang Chih-cheng has specially treated the silver foil so that through oxidation on exposure to air, it presents a mottled texture suggesting the passage of time. These second-hand clothes on the market represent objects that someone no longer needs, but Huang searches for such things, because they are like encrypted databases of other people’s lives; he attempts to guess and interpret them. At the same time, one wonders, in a modern society that overproduces memories, whether memory is a process or a burden for individuals?
