“Augusta Wood explores the persistence of memory, and the ways in which imagery and text can interact to shape meaning of experience. (…)
Her latest series I have only what I remember (2009) investigates further the ways photography can elicit meaning from the personal archive that is memory. Revisiting the center of her early life, Wood projects into the empty rooms of her grandparents’ former home multiple, overlapping family snapshots of the artifacts, figures, and circumstances that shaped her past experiences, and thus, her present memories. As constructions of the documented past, Wood’s photographs urge us to recall for ourselves the former presence of rooms and relationships that shape our current selves.”
