Kaste Seskeviciute


One of the dialectics that I employed in my previous work was much influenced by the differentiation of two types of „nostalgia“, coined by prof. Svetlana Boym: the restorative and the reflective . These conceptions mark the distinction between the two ways of dealing with the past: the former (restorative) is preservative, monumentalizing and glorifying the past and is by necessity affiliated with the sovereign. The latter, on the contrary, destabilizes this hierarchical structure by introducing ‘porosity’ and ‘gaps’ as subjective storytelling and putting the undocumented communal memory into significance. Interestingly, this duality echoes in the recent writings of Lebanese author Walid Sadek’s notion of forgetting as non-linear remembering that cannot be monumentalized. Within his theoretical passage from contemporary “wreck” – a place of massive violence or war disaster- to the ruin and the monument that is raised in order to numb the sorrow of the event and therefore to politicize the mourning. Human memory is something that doesn’t follow orchestrated linear patterns: it is constantly self-redefining and re-evaluating process. Thereof I’ve been exploring structures of non-linear or contra-linear perception of the past as a critique on the archive and its significance in relation to the political.
