Abstract

Studying both Psychology and Visual Arts, I focused on an overlap of the fields by exploring narrative identity development through art. Using three walls, my gallery space serves as a memory box of autobiographical memories depicted as paintings, drawings, and objects. The subject of my work is divided into four groups of autobiographical memories, which I have defined as memory webs. Constructing narrative identity is both an individual and socio-cultural process. Through creating and exhibiting my work, I have further incorporated these memories into my identity. In addition, the viewers use their own experiences to make meaning from my art in order to reflect on their own identities.
