Remembering the Present
Using still photography and moving image, Derek Hughes explores themes of memory, melancholy, history, and trace. By exploring his own past, alongside the history of a small local chapel, Seion, of which he is the custodian, Hughes creates a visual representation of history’s fragmentation.
Throughout the process of making this body of work, the chapel has become a material reflection of self, having once flourished with excitement and optimism, now tainted by a sense of melancholy.
