Jess D’Cruze: ‘Griho- The Walls Do Talk’.

 

I hold onto those memories: incomplete recollections, fleeting experiences, scribbles, smudges, scrapes cast aside.

Trophies and souvenirs to collect. Constant reminders of the past, gnawing away from the inside. The ones that remain through all the stages of your life.

I stand here, defining you. Through my big windows, doors, cracked walls.

I expand with your birth; twenty people squashed into one space, crammed and suffocating—a loving environment nevertheless.

I stand, half slanted, almost broken.

I watch you begin to piece together these memories, even the most atrocious ones. We remember them together fondly.

PHOTODUST is an independent art and photography organisation based in Melbourne, Australia. We are a not-for-profit Asia-Pacific curation project. Our aim is to engage and encourage collaboration between artists, for the production and publication of photographic and lens-based art. PHOTODUST aims to establish a unique perspective toward visual culture. For this purpose, we are constantly searching for artworks that involve the use of photography and related processes. The rules are simple: all photographic and lens-based works will be considered. Our only requirement is that the work should be produced by artists born or based in the Asia-Pacific region. www.photodust.org (copyright details available here: http://peril.com.au/about/photodust/)
