Curator: Erandy Vergara-Vargas

Do you remember the first time you saw the ocean? Or do you remember what it is like to return to a coast and observe the sea expanding before your eyes? What does your memory sound like? Does it have a smell? Do you remember how it feels to be submerged in salty water, the sensations on your skin, the sand under your feet, the water temperature, the taste in your mouth? Sea memories reach all our senses. In La mer/In a Blue While, Pavitra Wickramasinghe appeals to our souvenirs through a series of paper and drawing installations that are as powerful and sublime as the ocean.
