In Siyan Camille Ji’s  works, photographs serve as a visual extension of personal memories and emotions. By capturing the essence of moments and infusing them with profound narratives, Ji invites viewers to navigate the interplay between memory and perception, constructing a visual language that resonates with the intricacies of the human experience.


The exhibition focuses on an intimate quality of memories and internal spaces. To embody the materiality of the immaterial, such as human emotions and memory, Ji adopts installation, collage, and modernist techniques—“expanded photography” effective in expressing the singular materiality of the paper medium, or the reverse, the plural texture of the digital. By utilizing wood, shells, strings, and fire, the materiality of the work forms a dialogue with the surroundings, speaking to a broad interest ranging from narrative to landscape. 


Intriguingly, landscape is also memoryscape. The dimensionality of Ji’s works concerns more than the spatial composition of the visual, but the geographical mapping of the temporal—the change in materiality and methodology is a response to the aesthetic and spiritual urge to map the “memoryscape”—a metaphoric landscape formed by intersecting and parallel planes of memory.
