Mater Matters: Memories to bury
Selected research images
Creating one's own ritual, changing the circumstances of remembering in order to process childhood traumas - that is how this project started. I revisited the house where I grew up, I wanted to face my own memories. I wanted to get them out of my system, so I can start my own life without extra packages.
I noted down my worst memories that were following me in my whole life, coming to the surface at the most unexpected moments and distroying what we can call a healthy mental state. Then I placed the notes where they actually happened and photographed them.
It was a process of taking control over these meories at the same time photography preserves them as well, which was not my intention. So I took an other action and censored by hand the written meories from the photographs.
The whole series contains eight censored images.
