RESTORY | INDUSTRIAL STORIES OF GERA
VISUAL IDENTITY, 2018
If memory is a reassembly of fragmented experiences, and history one of fragmented stories and events, the physical space of both history and memory are places, also fragmented through time.
RESTORY creates an archive by re-approaching abandoned industrial buildings, remnants of past social life, and through storytelling and the testimonials of the elders, thus reassembling old stories but also creating new ones.
Through a procedure of interviews, archival research, testimonials but also workshops and rehearsals, a documentary theater play is produced and presented to the local community, created and performed by it’s members.
