Last Year at Marienbad redux
"Last Year at Marienbad redux" is an exhibition, public program and publication that together examine how fictional narratives develop over time to form accepted knowledge of people, places, events and things. Inspired by the unconventional cinematic techniques such as nonlinear narrative and repetitive language used in the 1961 film "Last Year at Marienbad"t; (directed by Alain Resnais, with screenplay by Alain Robbe-Grillet), the exhibition "Last Year at Marienbad redux" features works of art that deploy these and other devices—editing, character development, plot, mise-en-scène and montage—to disrupt, challenge and conflate what is understood as fact and fiction. The project explores how memory, meaning and, ultimately, an understanding of reality are shaped.
