Based upon fascinating scientific research that demonstrates how susceptible we are to false memories, A.R. Hopwood’s False Memory Archive features contemporary artworks and a unique collection of vivid personal accounts of things that never really happened.

Opening with a display of digitally manipulated photographs of UFO sightings, Hopwood’s work evocatively reflects the way we creatively reconstruct our sense of the past, while providing insight into the often humorous, obscure and uncomfortable things people have misremembered.
