Memory and emotion – These works by artists from three countries revolve around structures for preserving cultural memories in objects, images and media. Memory shapes our identity, changes, leaves its mark and shapes our longings. Memory provides cultural roots with emotional depth and shapes our collective subconscious. The artists offer widely varied perspectives on a topic that is very difficult to grasp.
The goal of this European artists' exchange, run by the district of Upper Bavaria, is to consolidate cultural relations between the countries of the European Community and to enrich the regional and Upper Bavarian cultural scene through a partnership. The Memotion exhibition is made up of works by the artists who participated in the exchange programmes with the Fondazione Pastificio Cerere in Rome and the Budapest Municipal Gallery in Budapest in autumn 2017.

Thomas Berra (Desio, Italy, 1986) has been experimenting with multiple media during the course of his artistic research: from installation to painting, through various expressive modes. Over the last two years he focuses on painting, experimenting with a refined and wild language that draws from the world of graffiti, to the lyricism of Henri Rousseau's two-dimensional detailing painting.

In my work as an artist I focus on isolating the daily processes of communication and movement from their immediate surroundings and subsequently restaging them in video installations. I investigate body language in the context of permanent interaction through the development of systems of notation and choreography. I am interested in how human beings are situated in a digitalized world at the same time being faced with the limitations of the body, the knowledge of said body as well as the impossibility of positioning oneself. The spatial installation of the works is essential for the reflection in a common space.

My Body is a fortress, but I´m living in a head.
In an almost reflexive form of automatism, Angela Geisenhofer records sensory impressions and turns them into a visual imagery with neither explanatory nor instructive qualities. Through the materials and surface characteristics of the media she selects for her images, and by employing special techniques, she deprives each segment of the image of its originality and significance and gives it a different, unreal inner life.

The work of Corinna Gosmaro focuses on reflections about the human being as a global entity and his/her timeless characteristics. The practice is based on the expression of a cognitive and psychophysical process activated through the interactions with the environment. Going back and forth on the border between painting and sculpture, the work draws this journey throughout the history of our culture. The possibility of engaging different patterns elucidating the distinction between the work and its display represents another step further in the artist’s work.

Analía Martínez devotes herself to representational motifs collated from a huge range of environments. In her paintings, the viewer's glance is immediately drawn towards the interior. Changes in colour defamiliarise the spaces in her pictures and thus challenge any supposed intimacy or usual interpretation of the situation portrayed.
Her printmaking work is an artistic investigation into the connections between painting and the reproducibility of prints. Consequently, the resulting works do not fit into any original, historical or social context and shake off the bonds of pre-existing knowledge.

From the beginning I was interested in the processes of sculpture: as I worked on one piece I took photographs of the stages of the work and created an animation from these pictures and usually exhibited the finished object together with the animation. However, the animations very soon started to represent something more or else than simply the working process. Thus I became obsessed by incorporating time into sculpture, working with time itself as a material.
In the past few years this interest in time led me to works about smoke, mist and fog. What really caught me is the strange relation between a solid block of stone, metal or wood piece and a seemingly no-form cloud or smoke made out of wool or synthetic fibers; the relation between the ever changing and ephemeral and the closed, stable and visibly heavy; the infinite and the finite.
