Overview

The more an event is remembered, the greater the difference between the memory and the original event.

Pablo Mercado is a renowned artist whose work focuses on the exploration of human memory and the brain processes involved in the creation and retrieval of memories. His artistic practice becomes a platform for connecting contemporary neuroscientific theories with the field of visual arts.

Intrigued by the complex workings of memory, Mercado has dedicated himself to investigating how memories are formed from fragments of information stored in different regions of the brain. He discovers that the hippocampus plays a crucial role in bringing these fragments together and constructing complete memories from different brain areas.

Through his artistic method, Mercado establishes an interesting connection between these neuroscientific theories and the visual arts. His artistic approach involves the use of objects that have an emotional connection to memory and human experience. He takes these objects apart and reconstructs them in a new, altered form, metaphorically reflecting the restructuring of memories in the brain.
