Same again (A sign from Cyndi)
Artworks of the Uhoda Collection
25025 Rue Saint Paul
from 2 February to 15 March 2023
Mark Melvin’s artworks invite the viewer to reflect through sentences that remain in the head for a long time. They remain in our memory, release subjective memories, and take on different meanings according to the viewer’s personal experiences.
In his installation Same again (A sign from Cyndi) he created in 2005, neon lights trace a text in a circle that lights up alternately in blue and pink. The words «Time after Time» turn constantly in a mechanical movement, a hypnotic game on the notion of repetition. The subtitle refers to Cyndi Lauper, a famous singer of the 1980s, and the memories that the artist keeps of her.
