Layers of remembrance

Some transparencies of my archive were photographed over a light table. These membranes, which were used as the first materials for prints, had all been exposed and developed in the dark room and then transferred on zinc plates or silkscreen frames, so as to become prints in the end. Recollecting them over a light table created for me a new opening for the understanding my past work and allowed me to experience the fragile nature of images as memories. My archive has released its force through recaptures of different accidental arrangements. It is somehow "a book of fragments of memories", were the personal and the historical/collective are blending in new patterns. As one transparency illustrates the other, layer over layer, concealing their initial function and meaning, there is a chance to observe that moment in the creative process when different elements of personal, collective or visual history tend to overlap and delete their own origins.
