Memorias Flotantes

Memorias Flotantes

A commissioned installation for the Rivington Place Christmas special Shutterbug Festive Bizarre.

A selected group of discarded objects from my collection hanging from a metal structure and brought to life by a vintage lightbulb. From sharp rusty objects to animal remains, toys, old photographs, a music box, textiles, etc. these objects appear suspended in the air. They bring together different sides of life and inner realms, aspects of childhood get mixed with elements evoking darkness, creating a sense of uneasiness. They are old and dusty, these signs of the passage of time on them highlight their beauty. The entire group is a homenage to the nostalgia of older times and a dream like picture that makes time appear frozen.
