“I’ve always been amazed when friends recount intricate details and entire storylines of their dreams while mine remain in shards—minute fragments of what was. Was it really a dream, or was it a previously forgotten memory seeping through to my conscious mind?”
Diana Nicholette Jeon’s Nights as Inexorable as the Sea is a series of black-and-white diptychs that reproduce the strange and unpredictable nature of dreams and memory. The artist’s uncanny yet poetic pairings of images reveal the inconsistencies of the subconscious, while their presentation in small, open-faced tins simulates the desire to hold onto these ephemeral memories, as if storing treasured snapshots and other keepsakes for posterity.
