Wear and memory, two nuances that develop in parallel. The first is a phenomenon that gradually progresses towards complete deterioration, while the second is about recalling a past memory in order to turn back the clock. One escapes control while the other attempts to claw it back; both deal with the notion of testimony and recollection. This dissertation explores wear as a vector of feelings, of these worn objects, materials or fragments of spaces that we keep, repair and sometimes enhance. The need to hold onto a certain authenticity, the memory of a vague and sometimes dreamed-up time. The work I am undertaking today attempts to reveal the links between memories and wear.
