Ilyn Wong
An Archaeology of You

March 2017


An Archaeology of You is a mixed-media project that proposes “you” as both the site and relic of an archaeological study. The task of imagining personal pronouns as place and object is also a absurd insistence on an aporia akin to emotional logic.

“You” is simultaneously an object of longing, an accusation, and sometimes just a rhythm or a texture. “You” are also a vehicle through which I understand myself, the addressee of my narrative. If “you” is an archaeology, it no longer serves the function of a subject, existing only in the past as fragments and hypotheses. If “you” belongs to a history that is unknowable, and I can only understand myself through you, then I cannot fully know myself – my history is in fact, an amnesia.
