Dislocated Memories, 2017
12 ft by 8 ft by 8 ft
In Dislocated Memories, Julie Gautier-Downes has constructed a freestanding room; which serves as a surrogate for her childhood bedroom, the room where she slept until she was eleven. In the room, she has assembled objects and furniture that resemble those she remembers. The goal of this installation was not about creating an exact replica of the room, but rather a space that resonates with her memories of that environment. Dislocated Memories explores explore the artist’s fractured relationship with home. Gautier-Downes received a GAP 2016 Grant funding for Dislocated Memories from the Artist Trust.
