Carol Young

Memoria (Memory). 2013
Ceramic installation of 130 elements
Carol Young’s installation is made with ceramic sheets that have been rolled and stacked, this work highlights the way in which earth, in this case alluvial deposits, can act as a repository of memory. Young’s installation is at the same time a territory, a river, and a library in which time is encapsulated and knowledge is stored.
