Memory of Friends

MEMORY OF FRIENDS

The 13rd of October 2023, I opened the exhibition titled “MEMORY OF FRIENDS”, located in a dormitory at an abandoned boarding school in Rantzausminde, Svendborg (DK). The exhibition consisted of 6 wall paintings, a window decal, 50 handouts and a bottle of Asti with 10 disposable glasses. I hope someone will see it, before it’s too late…


The handout says:


"Good times & crazy make friends the best memories. Behind us are memories beside us are friends before us are dreams. Things end. But memories last forever.A best friend is someone who loves you when you forget to love yourself. I love those random memories that make me smile no matter what’s going on in my life right now. Friends become our chosen family. Real friends know all of your best memories because they’ve spent them all with you. I’ve made friends that will last me a lifetime. Our memories will never fade. True friends don’t say good-bye, they just take extended leaves of absences from each other. So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good. A sweet friendship refreshes the soul. A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails. Friendship is like a violin; the music may stop now and then, but the strings will last forever. The best things in life come in threes, like friends, dreams, and memories. Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget. Our paths may change as life goes along but the bond between friends remains ever strong. A good friend knows all your best stories. A best friend has been there to live them with you. A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care to acquire. Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, & impossible to forget. A single rose can be my garden… A single friend, my world. Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there. Millions of memories, Thousands of jokes, Hundreds of secrets, One reason... Best friends.Life brings tears, smiles & memories. The tears dry, the smiles fade, but the memories last forever. When you’re up in life, your friends get to know who you are! When you’re down in life, you get to know who your friends are! We’re not friends. We’re stranger with memories. Friends are the most important part of your life. Treasure the tears, Treasure the laughter, but most importantly, Treasure the memories. Childhood friendship is the most beautiful memory that can’t ever be replaced."
