Abstract

This thesis aims to address the motivational elements of considering remembrance as an art subject and the objectification of it. Throughout the research process, the main concern will be on understanding the idea behind the monument as an evocative structure and the urge of monumentalization of the unofficial history in relation with the author's installation. It will concurrently discuss the placement of daily components in an art context through the installation which is structured as a monument for author's personal archive including images, video, audio, letters and objects of knowledge. For this purpose, various films, some neuroscientific patient cases and visual documents will also be analyzed in accordance with their content and metaphorical relations along with some literature review. This thesis aims to discuss that personal archives do not only create an unofficial history but also act like an archaeological component for the future.
