Para-archive #2

This theme is a continuation of the earlier one, however there is a divergence of ideas. As before there is a blend of the past and the presence (achieved by photo-montage); however here I use them interchangeably. Sometimes I visit historical places, the other time people from “there” are found “here”. In contrast with the first theme, the second one seems to be ridiculous. In the former there was a one way journey to one event, the latter is illogical, there is no unity of time and place. I began my project with the concept of children. It would have been amazing to play with my eight year old grandma or to hold in my arms my baby father. Thank to this strangeness I am trying to realize the importance of the past to which soon I will belong. I study family roots as I hope to find something which allows the past to “exist” or if it is not possible I hope to imagine he past myself or even to substantiate it with the photographs.
