They promised they would never forget each other, no matter what. Then they broke up. As the detritus of their relationship gradually crowds the stage, two characters grasp at the fragments of their memories to come up with a shared version of their story. But can they agree on a single script?
Selected Recordings of Us is all the photos, misremembrances and possessions left behind, sealed up and packed away after a couple disassembles.
It’s a queer love story that cannot find a stable form and demands that the audience interact, take sides, and be pictured alongside it. We’re gathering evidence to prove what happened, to prove something happened, and you’re a part of it.
This non-linear two-hander asks how the camera frames our memories, how technology constructs the person we love, and whether a story can ever resist diffraction.

Following the steps of controversial Italian activist Mario Mieli, queer artist Gabriele Uboldi embarks on a digital and site-specific journey to 1970s LGBTQ+ London. Reflecting on Mieli’s heritage and his own queer migration, Uboldi unearths the hidden sites of a history that is both personal and political, exploring notions of queerness and belonging.
Exploring the connection between space and memory, Londra Invisible City is an online project that can be accessed both remotely and in an immersive way through geo localisation technologies.
