I...Cognitive maps - Chapter 1 - Ely Daou
What do you remember about a room? Or about an apartment or space you lived in, but which no longer exists or where you never went back to. In I... Cognitive Maps - Chapter 1 artist Ely Daou, born in Beirut in 1986, travels through his memory – and history – attempting to sketch the different apartments and living spaces he occupied during and just after the Lebanese Civil War. The architectural details – as they are remembered or perhaps transformed by the artist’s memory – become the starting points for re-entering both the spaces and the past. I... Cognitive Maps - Chapter 1 is an account exploring two fundamental aspects of our physical and mental experiences: where we are and who we are.
