Featuring the works of MA Fine Artists from Wimbledon College of Art, curated by Christina Millare, Memoria Technica focuses on the use of primary memory and nostalgia instigated by the works within the exhibition. The artists’ works are envisaged as manifestations of the individual (artist’s) memory, deciphered and understood within the spectator’s understanding of shared experience and cognitive recognition. The space (The Nunnery) thereby becomes an accomplice in creating an environment that encourages active reminiscence. Both elements (the artworks and gallery space) act as distinct components of the ‘memoria technica’, an overarching apparatus that encourages the act of reminiscence to take place.

Memoria Technica will be showcasing work crossing the boundaries of painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, film, sound, sculpture and installation by graduate artists at the interim stage of their postgraduate degree.

This exhibition is the first part of the Wimbledon School of Art’s MA Show. Week 2 titled 'Wunderkammer' which will  be held The Nunnery Gallery from 8th March
