Apartment #5, a Labyrinth and Repository of Spatial Memories

In this frightening period of the lockdown due to the pandemic, travel has become difficult, unsafe, and restricted. The future bears uncertainty, if and when we may travel to experience new places, and re-visit places of our past. Places which once drew people to experience their spaces are now “indefinitely” and “temporarily closed”, with no certain opening date.
We are isolated in our homes…left with our memories of those faraway places, with only our photographs to recall them. Locked in our dwellings, we long to be able to escape to a past before the lockdown, to places far away from here.

Residing in London, the dwelling curates spatial experiences from a recent voyage to India. Set both in real space and imaginary space, the project seeks to re-create those atmospheres and spatial conditions of the places remembered through memories. The following question arises: can the dwelling become a ‘repository’ of curated spatial memories of places which can no longer be accessed ? a way to re-experience those places within the space of the apartment?
