Document is an exhibition by Sarah Grace Harris that investigates how we approach documenting, whether it be a life, an object, an event, or our memories. What does it mean to document something? How many different ways are there to document? Why do we feel the need to document?
Using her own family’s ephemera as a resource Harris has been exploring these questions. She has sifted through suitcases of possessions, some hidden away and untouched for up to ten years, considering what is important, what is useful, and what defines a person.
Is the physicality of an object important in remembering, or is a simple image enough to evoke a time, person, or place? Who is in the process of documenting for? What purpose does it have? Through confronting these questions she will seek to decide ‘what will remain’.
