Des souvenirs are works that I’m still trying to apprehend. I explored the subject of memory and a connection with someone, someplace. Those souvenirs that come with the departure of a country or an area we used to call home are a phenomenon that I found puzzled. The vagueness, the loss plus, the fabrication of memories begin a questioning on surety and validity. I am left with the emotion that those recollections made me felt. Because the places, faces and names become a subject of interrogation.
I created those masked figures and placed them in a situation that was convergent with the photograph. I used as the starting point the pictures of myself and my family. Hiding those identities is a choice that was made intentionally. Des souvenirs aren’t about the point of view of oneself, but the retracing of something familiar.
