"Memory is not in the present, but in the past; or we could think of it as being in the future, as a proaction of data that we have collected. In this sense, what we experience is just one perception of reality."
This work is a reflection on space and collective memory starting from the Bergsonian ideas of Memory and Material. Feeling “out of place”, trying to reconstruct a memory of landscape, in which the place and the spaces within it don’t have any clear contextual reference. The image, interact with the figure she or they are enclosed in by pronouncing the names of places that contrast with the ones she or they can see. This creates a feeling of disorientation on the part of the other people in the space, creating an emotional flow in which memory, visual perception and the sensations linked to them meld together diachronically. During the vision various components are investigated (objects, names, things, presence, space). The memories arising from this pattern of associations interacts with each of these elements, allowing imperceptible new kinds of reactions to emerge. This creates an environment in which one is lost, intuition precedes rational knowledge and colours our perception of the unusual skyline that happen to be there. This allows one to experience the work from a different perspective. This work has been conceived in order to interrupt the emotional flow that usually exists between art and those who enjoy it. We can imagine a non contemplative art which responds to the needs of an unstable aesthetic which questions our historical memory of the landscape as classic form that we revere. Looking into the space we see around traces remain of what has just happened: the echoes of their voices, the movements that up until a little while ago seemed to fill the place have now disappeared.
