MEMORY IS A FUTURE TENSE is a collaboration between artist Lu Cong and poet Serena Chopra. The artist and poet create separately and practice chance operations in pairing a line of text with an image – the converging conversation between image and text, between line and figure, situates memory as a future potential of unexpected and unpredictable interactions.

The dependency of text on image and image on text demonstrates that the interpretation of form, and thus identity, relies on necessary but transient encounters.
