“It’s A Long Story I’ll Save For Later,” a solo exhibition by MFA Candidate Paper Buck, traverses the former homesites of his (post-) Irish Catholic family across backwoods Pennsylvania and Southwestern Ireland. Through video, drawing, photography, and writing, this installation is a meditation on the dynamic process involved in the construction of collective memory, or it’s lack—forgetfulness. Looking at his family tales in terms of trauma and assimilation, white supremacy, diaspora, and empire, the exhibit explores the sculpting of narrative, in both silence and embellishment, to explore the affective landscape of storytelling.
