Early 2009 I did an artist-in-residence at Makan House in Amman, the capital of Jordan. My studio looked out on a mural saying 'No member' on a wall. No one knew exactly who made it and it had been there for almost two years. There were people who thought it was an annoying text. I decided to transform the words into a more positive one, a word that radiates comtemporary history of this region of the world: Remember.
The video was exhibited in 2009 during my solo exhibition THERE at Makan House at the end of my residency which was made possible by Fonds BKVB.
Remember is part of the video project City One Minutes Amman. An excerpt can be viewed in the video message for the program Grenzeloos at De Veemvloer i.c.w. Galerie Witteveen at 2'38''.
