Anamnesis, means ‘recollection’, ‘reminiscence’, ‘recollection’, bring to the present the memories of the past, recover the information recorded in the past. It is made up of vestiges that are nested in the background of emotional memory, traces, fragments, stains, phrases and thoughts that, just as they are not born, do not die, they remain eternal and remind us that that space abandoned at the mercy of oblivion, was previously a place occupied by desires, feelings, people, moments that install their presence in the work like a scar marked in time that even having disappeared, we know that it was there.
With this project I have proposed to merge a series of works that I previously made in other formats, such as video, installation and transfer, in order to re-signify the everyday and the unconscious. I started working with albums of family photographs from which some photos had fallen and had been lost, but which left their mark, or their epigraph, which I reinforced with transfer of the photographs that had been pasted on the album sheets themselves. The intention now is to work with different techniques such as engraving, mono copies, embossing, stains, collage, to represent those | ephemeral objects, apparently insignificant, almost unnoticed, but that leave the secret conviction of passing through our hearts from time to time.
This small production will be part of a multidisciplinary exhibition that I will carry out in Asunción in the coming months Absencias Presentes, accompanied by the albums, a video art and a sound installation.
