Hannah Raisin Recall, 2016

Pupils shrink and take in a foggy audience, the membrane cracks, the syrup congeals and I gag on a failing synthetic rainbow – then clapping. I wonder if Carolee’s audience applauded.

Raisin’s exhibition Recall employs sensation, memory, re-performance and document to reengage a moment. Based on a reimagining of Carolee Schneemann’s 1975 performance ‘Interior Scroll’, ‘Dear Carolee, love Cindy, Love Hannah’ was initially commissioned by Channels Festival for the 2013 Memory Screens program. Like routine glances in the review mirror, Recall presents a suite of fragmented memories and reflections from this experience.
