Combining sculptural installation with video projections and sound, the piece 'With clarity after the fact', explores the mechanics of memory, specifically in relation to a single event - the accidental breaking of a small statue of the ‘Child of Prague’ in my grandmothers house, sometime in the early 1980’s.  Although the exact details of the event have been lost over time; the memory of the small statue, high on its shelf, and subsequently in pieces on the wooden floor, are recurring images of that place and time.
