Memory Hive – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Memory Hive. Opening on at 7pm GMT on 2nd June and running until 23rd June, the exhibition will feature over 80 incredible original artworks by more than 70 super talented international artists.

At first, the concepts of ‘creativity’ and ‘memory’ may appear to be in contrast; one centres around the creation of new and innovative ideas, while the other involves the attempt to recreate events and experiences that have occurred in the past. However, from other points of view the differences may not be as distinct. Research into memory has shown that information is sometimes deleted from our recollection of events and new information is often added that was not present during the original experience. Therefore, it has been argued that the act of remembering involves an imaginative reconstruction of the past. Creative behaviour can often involve elements of memory, as artists draw from their personal experiences. Our exhibition this month is in celebration of the parallels and interconnections between creating and remembering. We welcome you to join us as we enter the ‘Memory Hive’.
