About her textile-based practice, Brebenel offers, “Our memory
system is fashioned so that we remember what is most important
to us. Though elusive and inaccurate in some situations, memory
forms the foundation for the strong beliefs we hold about ourselves.
Recollections are abstract expressions of past experiences that
bear associations to specific thoughts and emotions. The pieces in
my installations serve as examples of quiet memories that have the
innate quality of taking me to the past, offering the possibility of
re-living my experiences, and releasing me from the irreversibility
of time.”
