Sculpture & installation
The Renaissance of Memory is an A/V Exhibition experience revolving around multiple digital projections telling the story of a boy's deep connection to memory and his journey of self-discovery. Showcased through a series of looping videos, each projection brings the audience into the memories of an individual longing to find their way back to their roots through memories of their past, present, and future. This installation showcases that at our core, there is an inner child within us that deserves unconditional love and nurturing. It is also a reminder of what memory may mean to us and how it serves as a way toward healing the traumas that cloud the love we have within, hoping to be let out. This is a journey of self-discovery and re-discovering parts of ourselves that we thought we may have lost touch with. The exhibition is a deep dive not only into the story of our inner child, self-exploration, and memory but also a display of what it feels like to connect (or be disconnected) to memories of our past; reminiscent of the nostalgia and bittersweet feelings of longing for what once was or was never there, to begin with. This experience encapsulates the raw beauty and true essence of memory and what it means to each of us in our lifetime. This venue is in a semi-open air space. There will be masks provided at the venue
This event is free.
Nayden is a 20-year-old Filipino-Canadian Artist and Filmmaker based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Being drawn to the arts from a young age, Nayden began to explore his creative pursuits at the age of 14 when studying filmmaking in high school. From making short vlogs and working freelance for a few years, Nayden began to pursue a career in filmmaking and develop his work as an overall artist after learning more about storytelling and falling in love with the craft. Nayden has worked on a variety of projects ranging from a motion design graphic being displayed at Nuit Blanche 2019 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, to a variety of short-format projects having success in film festivals and being a recipient of many awards, and nominations, one of the most recent being a nomination for Student Cinematography at the annual Canadian Society of Cinematographer’s award Gala in 2021. With experience in various mediums of art, Nayden continues to develop his work as an independent artist and aims to continue to create experimental projects and stories that share a personal experience with himself and with his audience.
