The image is the documentation of an installation that artist Sara A.Tremblay created during a residency on the Island of Gotland in Sweden. Inspired by the wind, she placed several hundred blank sheets of paper on the outer wall of her residence. The papers fluttered and moved with the breeze coming from the Baltic Sea. This captured moment reveals a calm memory. The white pages compiled into a grid formation become monumental flags for the imagination.


Concordia Remembers

Works of art long have been central to commemorating major world events as well as allowing respite and a site for contemplation. Concordia Remembers acknowledges the annual ceremonial events of Remembrance Day on November 11th. Artists were invited to submit works that address the function of memory, invite retrospection, and investigate the role of memorial through images or a series of images for reproduction and presentation.
