Spencer Harvie with Charlie Donaldson 'MEMORY FOAM NEVER FORGETS'


  • Metro Arts 109 Edward Street Brisbane, QLD, 4000 Australia (map)

Borrowing from the aesthetics of Internet conspiracy theories, Memory Foam Never Forgets is an investigation into associative-thinking as a strategy for creating alternative stories about our reality. 

This collaborative exhibition by QCA Alumni Charlie Donaldson and PhD candidate Spencer Harvie pulls together hundreds of disparate images sourced from the Internet into a cohesive installation that attempts to uncover the true nature of what is really going on in the world. 

The two artists share an obsession for hoarding images of the paranormal, the political, and the silly. Memory Foam Never Forgets is the result of Donaldson and Harvie combining their image collections and discovering connections and shared stories between their private archives. The exhibition shows alternative ways of thinking about what we see online while charting the overlap between two artists' shared obsessions, skepticism and fantasies.
