In the attempt to capture and contain lost information, Sara Jimenez weaves fabric nets which are suspended from the ceiling of the gallery and fill the space. These nets are filled with natural debris and objects that have been altered and transformed by the sea. The viewers navigate around the nets, catching phrases of conversation that emanate from them while surrounded by ambient sound.

In collaboration with Or Zubalsky, Jimenez has created audio vignettes. The audio is a compilation of recorded interviews with various family members from the Philippinesnestled into the installation like mined artifacts being recovered from the brink of obscurity.

The environment is not a static or fixed space, but rather an unending attempt to excavate the vast space of cultural memory. Two performers in an elevated space continue to weave and create new nets, pointing to endless process that seeking entails.
