About
The past is constructing the present and the present in turn – the future. The moment wrested from the current of time is dead, because it has lost it‘s prolongation, it is imprisoned between sides of a canvas. Only a recollection of a moment depending on a term of time is changing: it is fading, popping, transforming, receding, resolving and converted view could be not recognizable anymore, it may transform to something that doesn‘t remind the thing you where trying to register. Could it be that not everything is the way it looks and not everything looks the way it is? So the transformation of the memory is my tool: I crop images, bleach them, zoom, put noise in it and I ask myself, can it reveal what‘s behind it, can it reveal the meaning? If not, is it possible to create what is hiding under it, can I anticipate what it could speak about? And however in the presence of impermanence it becomes the brigthly shining reference of a doubt and senselessness. But senselessness which is not sad, nihilistic or negative it is just self-contained, inevitable.
