Below are images from the series Those aren’t your memories, they’re somebody else’s, (2011)
“The images of this series developed from a process of repeated reproduction of my photographs, resulting in a increasing vagueness and abstraction of the depicted urban scenery. The pictures appear like windows opening up the view towards an ambiguous and phantasmagoric urban landscape, blurred like a very fragile and maybe wrong memory. Elusive and vague they fade away into a visual noise displaying their own fundamental instability and uncertainty. A source of inspiration for this work was the concept of ‘mémoire involontaire’ and the specific mode of perception represented in the cultural figure of the ‘flaneur’, questioning the coherence of human recollection.” – Diana Artus
