Memory of Sound
18 May 2021 – 30 June 2023
Orleans House Gallery
Experience a geolocated audio experience created by artist Ana Heilbron-Jácome and explore the grounds of Orleans House Gallery in a new way.
Memory is a journey through time. Every time we remember, we go back to the past to reaffirm the present and write a new future. Either consciously or unconsciously, it is part of our routine. In this process, an update of feelings, emotions and memories, meaning and identity are generated. The same happens with sound.
Sound is invisible. It takes no physical space, but it is part of the construction of the ecosystem, and it is part of the relationship humans have with the environment. So how do we want this relationship to be? How can the sound help us to reconstruct the environment? Is there a past, present and future of sound for the ecosystem?

Colombian artist and visual sociologist Ana Heilbron-Jácome has been working as a graphic designer, photographer and audio-visual producer and editor since 2013.
Her art intersects with activism, culture, and social change. Life has multiple registers; hence she addresses her investigations by acknowledging the senses and emotions of the social via inventive methods of research. She approaches different themes such as memory, environment, and First Nation Groups cosmologies.
Her main objective is to deploy these methods to create an artistic piece that causes the audience to reflect about their own experience, about new realities, and the changes they have undergone.
