Transforming spaces and perceptions through memory are at the heart of
Anton del Castillo’s *A Child’s Memory *and Eric Zamuco’s *Another Other*.
Drawing inspiration from their experiences as fathers and husbands, the two
artists create and construct retrospective worlds of movement and change.

In *A Child’s Memory*, del Castillo presents us with an intensified
reminiscence of childhood: a well-enjoyed game of jackstones, each piece
easily captured in one’s hand, becomes a monument to an object whose
meaning and use is fading. The travels of a family are visually archived in
detail and retrospect in Zamuco’s *Another Other*. Each object represents a
specific time-space, a moment in a family’s life, living abroad and moving
from place to place. It is also a speculation of what has come to pass and
what will happen next: a documentation of memory, domesticity, travel, and

The works from the two shows employ materials that can be found used in the
building of homes: metal, concrete blocks, wood, screws, varnish to protect
surfaces with—things that represent the cohesion and strength that the
father’s authority brings to the household. Yet, it is belied by a certain
kind of tenderness that passes by undetected at first glance: a child’s toy
embedded in concrete and an article from the wife (proof of the desire to
hold on to something that will eventually disappear or disintegrate), and
the lines and scratches on the metal surface of a jackstone sculpture (a
testament of another kind of “labor of love”).
Form and narrative meet in *A Child’s Memory *and *Another Other*, bodies
of work that provide a different angle and insight on the cause of gender
equality and roles. They can also be seen as a call to re-evaluate our
sense of sex, that perhaps in seeking to prove that one is better than the
other, rather than seek for balance, to meet each other half way, we are
merely replicating the biases that we wished to do away with in the first
place. In this respect, the works go beyond mere recollection and revisit
but also a re-evaluation of each person’s presence in other people’s life.
