Thursday, 10th April 08, 7.30 p.m., the exhibition runs until 10th May, 08.

The project STRUCTURAL MEMORY focuses on images of large-scale urban architecture and architectural landscape. For this part of the project the work comes from 3 major cities in Lebanon that where badly damaged during the "JULY 2006 WAR" But the images are not meant to only reflect the historic events that occurred during that period in Lebanon. The over laid images are constructed to be a metaphor for the way we create our own structural memory. The images themselves are often dark and mysterious, but they are not meant to be ghost-like cities or fading dreams. The images invoke a sense of wonderment, or awe, and a chance for exploration as one looks through the various layers to try and come to an understanding of how one can perceives this particular space. It is, after all, a constructed space, but one that, in the end, contains just as much reality as the most straightforward photographic document, or personal memory. Brian McKee
