Peta Houghton: Memory Motel - Art Collector

Sandy Cube, 2012. C-type print. 142 x 110cm

The quite extraordinary Memory Motel exhibition of paintings, drawings and installation pieces continues Peta Houghton's "ongoing autobiographical project." A follow-up to her enormously successful The Baggage Room series, Memory Motel again suggests the accoutrements of long journeying punctuated by fleeting moments of respite and recollection. This new body of work however, is also a very personal meditation on the transience of the physical body, the mind and memory. "Through old family images and memories, or more specifically, memories of memories, I am endeavouring to investigate the representation of the body as a site of instability," offers Peta.
