Exploring ideas of imagined memories and the phenomenon of light, Sue de Beer creates installations comprising sculpture, video, and light projections. As viewers move through her spaces, they block the projected light, casting shadows and eclipsing the objects. In a 2011 installation, de Beer projected a film that had been edited to produce “persistence of vision”—an optical phenomenon in which the perceived image is thought to remain on the retina for a fraction of a second. De Beer uses repeated patterns, a saturated palette, and cinematic devices and lighting to construct her haunting, dreamlike narratives that evoke familiar-yet-intangible associations. To quote a character from her 2002 film Hans & Grete, “Sometimes, you remember places you have never been, or people you have never met.”
