What remains of what it was - Archived Album (AML) - A family in a garden

Intervention on inkjet print. 99×131 cm.


“(…) In “O que ficou do que foi ” (“What remains of what once was”), the artist invokes memory imprecision through erasing, scratching, and fading away of images belonging to her closest surrounding: family. The photographic processing torn off – accumulating in the bottom of the frame – erases information on spaces, context and characters. Just like we all unwillingly discard our personal history, until what remains is but ashes from times gone by.”
