Welcome to the first episode of our new podcast series, Gaining Ground, hosted by our curator-in-residence, Annie Jael Kwan.

In each episode of Gaining Ground, Annie will be chatting with artists from our current exhibition, Future Ages Will Wonder. Tracing through the motifs of land, soil and earth, these episodes explore how we develop an understanding of who we are and where we belong. Each episode will open up a conversation about how we create and share history by exploring other ways of learning such as oral histories, embodied knowledge and folk tales.

In this first episode, Annie chats with artists Yarli Allison and Boedi Widjaja to ask what does the concept of memory mean when making artwork? What are the challenges artists face when systems and technology are used to tell personal stories? And if reconstructing history is important, why?
