InsideOut: Benjamin Skinner

"We all live by leaving behind" - life is impossible without forgetting.

With memories fractured across time, layered through every retelling, and stitched together with the remembrances of others, we gaze through a window that meets us with the scattered, the random, the lost, the distorted. To decipher this, we call on all that we have collected within us, not mere curiosities, but an assembly of textures, sensibilities, experience, and reverence. Through this veil we honour that which is fragile, vulnerable, and resilient. The past offers an invitation to look inside - submerges us in the stories we want to remember, confronts us with the ones we wish to forget - and allows space for the unexpected to emerge outside ourselves.
