We were born into a story, it is our life story. It started far before we were born and was itself initiated by the stories of our parents. All our memories, making up our life story, the nice ones and the painful ones, are moments coming from a state when we were connected. we understand backwards and live forwards, and these memories give us the roots to grow our life on. As artists we are especially obliged to find more memories, to find those memories that are hiding behind known memories, and that sometimes, by themselves, appear and disappear again. sometimes through associations, sometimes through certain moods, and sometimes we can’t even fathom why. Due to the very nature of real creativity – creating the new instead of perpetuating the old mechanical ,same’ – WE need to find those memories – this is the fuel that is necessary for our future new work. Finding those memories, that are still nameless, unknown to us, in ourselves: the missing memories of our future.

« In her later years my mother gave me a mysterious gold monogram brooch which a tangle of calligraphy shapes miraculously created my grandmother’s first name, Mathilde. Grandmother I never got to know. I remember only my mother wearing it, bearing her mother’s name on her body. My grandmother’s memory symbolically was thus embedded in my mother’s soul – now in mine. The gold brooch, which was probably a personal emotional gift, tells us her name as an act of showing the world a self-confident and financially secure outer self, thus corresponding with the wearer and the viewer.
The curled monogram letters may appear purely decorative as ornaments. The emotional stories and memories associated with it I can only speculate.
I have no one to ask… » (Sara Shahak)
