FICTION OF MEMORY
The memory is the place where this happens for the second time.
To remember is to rebuild. The memory is a creative process; each time we’re remembering, we’re rewriting that memory, it’s a reinterpretation of what has happened.
Our memory rebuilds overlapping, juxtaposing the memories until a new story is created, a fiction of what is was. In tht story we can find fissures, interstices where details and images go missing.
In my works, I remember through fragments of objects that end up conforming a new one. Those are fiction of my own memories, as Jeanne d’Arcs portrait that presided in my livingroom’s childhood, surrounded by my grandmother’s crockery and framed by curtains. In the pieces, remains the memories of those brushtokes from my early works as a painter.
