Memory has become part of the world’s collective culture institutionally produced by the curation of the past. Now, within the institutions, memories are subjected to new practices of reinterpretation as a means of negotiating their colonial history. Through the process of curation, the system produces knowledge as a single chronological timeline perceived as objective truth. This design project is an acknowledgment of the truancy within the curatorial work of institutions. By veiling the objects, or omitting them from their purposeful place, museums reject the meaning and the tactile nature of the relics in them. This project presents an archived meta-object by its absence. It takes a post-structural approach towards the duality within museums as they are dealing with their colonial past and its violent nature.
