Fictional Memories, 2012
The images documents from an archive are their letters; diaries, photographs, postcards, drawings, etc. are important "part" to understand how the individuals of a season lived, as they related socially, a way of life, visions of the world, an entire context and for a season.
In this way, there is a need on the family interest to record and organize their albums.
As the photographer who fixes the time and show the culture in images, photographing a present that soon after the instant photo becomes past. As it happens in the family, is the fear of the disappearance and the tightness of preserving the images.
The photograph with the passing of years, it has become a ritual of family life.
The close relationship with the past, the absence of loved ones, of material goods, the brevity of all these artefacts became even more intense.
What I wanted to develop in this work was the theme of a fictional memory space.
From the archive of the family of Architect Marques da Silva, I developed a work where resorted to contextualisation and the movement space/time of the human element in the family photographs selected for a new space and for a new time, the present, held this year in the spaces of the Foundation through the manipulation.
Constructed via the photo manipulation, new memories, from images of family and of images of the area of the Foundation and in this way create fictional memories of a past that never existed.
Through the manipulation of images, I wanted to produce images the more realistic as possible, so that visually the spectator feels that is observing a family old image.
