Troy Ignacio continues to tread through the vagaries of memory as he presents new work in EVERYTHING LOSES ITS MEANING EVENTUALLY. In this exhibition, Troy looks at our hoarding or archival impulses towards tokens, remembrances and souvenirs because they supposedly represent mementos of a time past. What does it mean when this cache is revisited? Or what happens when they are not frequented at all?
EVERYTHING LOSES ITS MEANING traces the function of sentiment within the continuum of a particular time, and how the proportionality of the significance of what these objects represent fluctuates and inverses with the virtue of memory.The exhibition will reveal to us familiar silhouettes of objects and receptacles that make up our memoirs and confronts us to think about the degree of emotional gravity we attach, or do not, to them.
