Timecode for a Narrative Voice addresses the elusiveness and merely suggestive feasibility of memory. In the film April there is a scene in which the artist arranges hundreds of clay fragments on a wooden table that were previously immersed in water. These are part of a collection of sherds of Cypriot pottery from the 12th-15th century that Christofides had found with her father in the ploughed fields and olive groves around Nicosia in the late 80s. It is a landscape that does not exist anymore, the town has expanded way past it. The shards of earthenware left traces on the wooden table, indistinct like the disembodied text fragments of an absent narrative voice – musings on a place by an attentive observer whilst he has long since left that place.
