Denise Carner Lorenzo was invited by Fundación´ace to exhibit her work Ephemeral, opening on November 20th within an ´aceNITE event, together with the work of other artists in residence. Denise participated in a micro-Residence with a full fellowship by Fundación´ace and was accompanied by the ´ace team while experimenting on her project, which revolves around exploring and developing diverse precarious or organic photosensitive materials.
EPHEMERAL (by Denise Carner Lorenzo)
The family album built the personal and collective memory of the analog generations, but what happens when it is discarded? Using photographs found in the trash as starting point, Ephemeral tries to show the mutability of memory using an organic support: image developing on chlorophyll, which over time is withers and disappears. The portrayed are anonymous, what we see in these images is an existence that ran out. Who are these people? Why does nobody want to remember them anymore? There is a memory that is lost, but in turn is transformed. When the private is found, it becomes public and these images open to multiple possible senses. I am interested in transforming this loss and providing these photographs with new meanings, based on this organic and fragile support which accounts for the precariousness of the memory.
