I utstillingen Acquaintances, viser kunstneren Lucila Mayol, verk som viser til forvrenging av hukommelse.
The work deals with the distortion that memory performs in our remembrances.
A family VHS video forgotten for ages, and found in an attic.
As the processes unfold, the obsolete original format is transferred to a low quality video; then is
edited: zoomed in and out, cropped and then exported into a superior frame size from the
allowed by the raw file; finally it is projected through a mirror to achieve a bigger size that the
projector itself allows, in order to cover the full size of the gallery’s wall.
The sound was found in a sound database, searched by words related to a fragment of the original
image. It is also distorted, enlarged, affected, and the reproduced in a loud volume.
Every step and operation is made to distort the memory.
What is the mnemonic device standing for right now?
