The False Memory Archive
A.R. Hopwood

Based upon fascinating scientific research that demonstrates how susceptible we are to false memories, A.R. Hopwood’s The False Memory Archive features new collaborative artworks and a unique collection of vivid personal accounts of things that never really happened. Including a series of large-scale photographs of damage caused to the walls of the Museum by previous art exhibitions and featuring an exchange with a fictional security guard, the project evocatively reflects on the way we creatively reconstruct our sense of the past, while providing insight into the often humorous, obscure and uncomfortable things people have misremembered.
