Weaving together salvaged film clips, artist Uriel Orlow will present his multi-media masterpiece “Aide-Mémoire” at the Museum of Contemporary Photography on April 25 at 6 pm. The show, which blurs the boundary between travelogue, slideshow and obscure history lesson, blends distant places and times to create a pictorial narrative merging the past, present and future.

Known for his modular multi-media installations, Orlow collects evidence from different times, locations and events. In “Aide-Mémoire,” he uses these salvaged materials to create a narrative that speaks of history and memory, and how both can haunt an individual. In his newly reconstructed pictorial landscapes, Orlow references such seemingly disparate sites as Biblical Mount Ararat, a Ghost Town in Northern Armenia on the site of an earthquake, and a Kurdish village in Turkey built out of the rubble of an ancient Armenian monastery.
