Conversation, The Archeological Memory

Artist Emii Alrai in conversation with archaeologist, curator and author Laurent Olivier. Laurent’s book The Dark Abyss of Time: Archaeology and Memory has been a key influence on Emii’s ongoing research into historical artefacts and museological processes and The Courtship of Giants. The book reframes the practices of archaeology as not to study the past itself but rather what materially remains of the past in our present.
