POSTCARDS FROM IMAGINARY PLACES, 2006 (Video, color, sound, 3' 11")

 

Video work Postcards from Imaginary Places is dealing with the fragility of the memory and the struggle to remember. Images showing sudden memory flashes represent seen but not quite familiar places, events one feels are experienced but can’t grasp their totality, can’t place them in any consecutive narrative. The backdrop for that struggle with one’s memory is the water – waste, calm and indifferent sea that maybe remembers everything.

Video work Postcards from Imaginary Places was created from the material found in the private collections of the home videos filmed by the 8 mm camera, dating from the 1970s. The video is one of the works from the series Madeleine, photography and video works dealing with personal and collective memory.
