Abstract: Orley considers the defining features of a commemorative performance by reflecting on and discussing a solo show she created in 2016 about her grandfather who was an immigrant and radiologist in the first half of the twentieth century. The chapter is driven by two key ideas, namely that heritage is a moment of action that is vital and alive rather than something frozen in the past (Smith in Uses of Heritage. Routledge and Taylor & Francis Group, London, 2006); and that the dead are still with us (Berger in Here Is Where We Meet. Bloomsbury, London, 2006). Orley experiments with Jane Rendell’s practice of site-writing (Site-Writing: The Architecture of Art Criticism. I.B. Tauris, London, 2010) to present a chapter arranged in fragments. She concludes that the kind of commemorative work in which she is interested is one that accounts for different perspectives, challenges one-sided historicity and offers new possibilities in the present.
