The second talk from the Gifts for Mother Mnemosyne exhibition programme was by Mark Currie, Professor of Contemporary Literature at Queen Mary University of London. His talk ‘Memory, Story, Forgetting’ looked at the proximity between memory and imagination, He spoke particularly about the work of Karl Ove Knausgaard, examining the structures of time and memory and the use of repetition within the text. After the talk, some of the audience accompanied Mark and myself to the Goods Shed where work on the new large-scale sculpture ‘Re-imagining Pluto’ is in progress.
