Lottie Consalvo works across a range of media including painting and performance, and in this exhibition combines these two disciplines into one major work. The paintings in ‘Before I forget’ bear gestural marks the artist made during a performance, in which she brought to mind a particular past recollection, and sought to ‘hold it in the present’, as she says. By documenting what Consalvo calls ‘the imagining of a time that has passed’, these works invite meditation on the shifting, and ultimately ungraspable nature of memory. The ephemeral quality of performance is counterpointed by the permanence and tangibility of painted forms.
