We choose what we want to remember, when everything else has been dismissed or forgotten. Our memories are inaccurate, possibly even false, yet we rely on them. In the utopia of having no memories nor a past which we could trace back, what would be left from us?In this creation we have focused on different aspects of memory and memories. Lacuna is a fragmented journey in a space where collective and individual memories overlap. The blind spots of memory create temporary emptiness, where the only concreteness lies in the body.
