EXBODYTION II

Traces Of The

Common Memory  

"…Each memory a person had, such as the memory of the last time you saw your grandmother, or the memory of the fragrance of a gardenia you sniffed when you were sixteen, was believed to have a specific location somewhere in the brain cells. Such memory traces were called engrams, and although no one knew what an engram was made of – whether it was a neuron or perhaps even a special kind of molecule – most scientists were confident it was only a matter of time before one would be found."

Michael Talbot, The Holographic Universe

Exbodytion originates from

EXHIBITION and BODY, combined as

EXBODYTION–from/through the body. This term was coined by the artist and used for the first time in the EXBODYTION exhibition in 2008, in the artist's atelier, when he exhibited a work drawn in urine–the artist's holographic code. Similar term was coined by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. Expeausition plays on the homonymy of the “po” sylablein 

exposition and the French word for “skin”, peau.
