Autobiographical Memory and the Construction of a Narrative Self Developmental and Cultural Perspectives
The narrative gives meaning to the past event and thus to the self, thereby providing the essential link between the past and the self. The task of preserving memory is difficult when it comes to art because there is inevitably tension between an object intended by the subjective mind and the objective fact or even it is mean to depict. Yep, it might be inaccurate to draw from one perspective and it's common that the cultural framework has always been neglected.
Though art is functions as a cathartic process for most of the artists. Part of me uses reminiscent childhood fragments to explore the fantasy, part of me is using my art to speak for a certain group of people who had experienced the same.
