I don't remember
by Yago Ferreiro y Gabriel Quindós
The four hundred and eighty micro-texts included in this book act as a new—and undisguised—homage to Georges Perec and Joe Brainard's I Remember. It will be when read that something that transcends this anecdote is revealed. Both Brainard and Perec collected their memories in order to build an archive that would serve both to describe themselves and their own time. The use of its reverse side—the memory disembodied—brings out something more powerful here: the fear of remembering what had already been forgotten. I don't remember it is a book that knows how to take a shortcut and also how to hurt, but, above all, it is a catalog of those mysterious flashes that refused to endure in the memory of its authors.
Yago Ferreiro was born in Barcelona in 1982 and has not died yet. Among many other things, he is the author of several books of poetry and has organized music and poetry events, as well as live concerts. From 2015 to 2018 he directed El Dia del Watusi, a celebration of live music and of the literature of the Spanish author, Francisco Casavella. In 2017 he was awarded the Villalar Foundation grant for artistic creation for a project that investigated the concepts of memory and loss and which culminated in the production of an art object in the form of a book and an exhibition.
