Musée Grévin, 1978, Hervé Guibert gelatin silver print , 5 5/8 x 8 5/8 inches

"Conversation last week, yesterday, five minutes ago, the language leaves your lips, who remembers when both actors have left the realm of speech and exchange? It is not just speech that is an utterance, but indeed names, identities, and culture that either remains within the consciousness of the living or who, scraped away by the erosion of wind and streams, gingerly flake, to be carried off, outside of the kingdom of memory." - Colin Marston

Literature student Colin Marston reflects on memory in this month's web gallery, You are there, in the place where you alone are absent, highlighting work by Hervé Guibert, Pepe Espaliú, Max Coyer, Patrick Angus, Steven Arnold, John Bommer Murphy II, Tony Greene, Crawford Barton, Ed Aulerich-Sugai, Carlos Almaraz, Mario Dubsky, and Rotimi Fani-Kayode.

Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry. View past Web Gallery here.
