Memory Black by Bill Durgin

Words

Bill Durgin is one of our favorite artists and we are glad to introduce his latest series ‘Memory Black’. He describes the series as ‘memory foam and black fluid’. Looking at the pictures we really get a rather oppressive feeling as if someone would mess with our usual perception. What is it that we are looking at? Is it human? Is it real or fictional? We are left alone with our thoughts, free to associate. Durgin himself states: ‘Memory Black is dark memory, poignant memory, obliterated memory. Memory is ambiguous and often liminal. Memory foam forgets. Black is dark. Black is sexy. Black is obliterated.’
