Madeleine, 2004, vidео (cоlоur, sound), 3’17“, еdition: 1/5
The mechanism of memory is still not fully explained, there are numerous and complex traces leading us to our personal memories. Works from the Madeleine series (started in 2004) are trying to explore images that are presenting or could present memory triggers. Through photographs and video works author opens the possibility for different interpretations of individual and collective images of the past.
(Name of the series, Madeleine, comes from the Proust major work: Madeleine is a cookie that, when dipped in the tea, acts as a memory trigger for author to start his search of the lost time).
