«Forget Me Not»
2007-2009, Quynh Dong

50’00’’, HDV

Quynh Dong deals with the appearance and disappearance of memories.

With the reduction and increase of the light source, the outlines of the shadow become more defined or they disappear into the white. Alongside the shadows, the outlines of the forget-me-not flowers are drawn, before they disappear into the white that the light and the projection screen have in common for some moments in the video.

A 2m x 3m x 40cm wall stands in the middle of the room. Only half of the room is dimmed. The projection shows the shadow of a forget-me-not flower. With the disappearance of the sun behind the clouds the shadow on the projection screen disappears.
