Abstract: The subject of the doctoral thesis: "Decades - memory decay. The record in clay", concerns autobiographical memory of an individual, attempt to find one's own identity. And the additional message included in the record shows relationship between the artist and the recipient. This work is a composition built of five painting objects depicting five decades of my life - the imprints made of one matrix being a mapping of a cavity - a trace in earth neighbouring my family house. The place evokes memories which form a personal record, a code of signs. My work is also an experience synthesis of various media that is a sensory feeling in the process of creation. In the interdisciplinary activity I have been trying to visualize my memories and the five objects I mentioned about are the place they were revealed. Searching for the most suitable method of performance which memory loss (having various reasons) or superimposition I have taken up painting activity on objects' planes from fired clay. I have adapted inlaying method, which according to me, is similar in its process to memory function. Some events, facts prevail, get recorded or embedded in our memory, others fall off, get lost like inlaid colored elements of clay compositions. Each and every record, being a trace-sign made by a man, confirms an unceasing interaction of perception on various planes, where the present time blends with pictures from our past. The interdisciplinary method enabled me to find the fullest way to materialize the issue concerning memories, recollections and imagination in my doctoral dissertation.
