(Im)memorabilia: Ephemerality, Resonance and the Collector’s Item

Harry Heuser

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


(Im)memorabilia draws on my own hoard of cinema and radio related artefacts from the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s. Few of them, shared publicly for the first time, are of appreciable exchange value. Gradually, I have come to realise their significance as manifestations of my own marginality, my sense of otherness. Since I received many of these seemingly trivial, mass-produced objects as gifts, they are both extensions of myself and expressions of fellowship. It is a web of associations I sought to widen by calling on others to share their thoughts on the collector’s items displayed here.
