On the 15th of February 1993, my mother walked from Zandvoort beach, the Netherlands into the North Sea to her death. The Unforgetting is a series of works that explores the texture of personal memory and is told through photography and sculpture and is presented in installation form. It is a series of works made up of remnants, exploring the loss of my mother, and our shared German ancestry.
Peter Watkins (b. 1984, UK) is a visual artist based in London. Watkins’ autobiographical work begins with photography, but incorporates sculptural and spatial elements. His work is above all a meditation on the practice of archiving and remembering: how certain material is preserved or lost through processes of memorialisation. www.peterwatkins.co.uk
