Fragments is composed of three series of collages. In each series, two visual languages — the representational and the abstract — are set to work and interact on the surface of grid paper. By placing my family’s photographs face down on the paper and arranging them in a random configuration, like characters of an unknown alphabet, an inner vision emerges, transforming reality. Together, the two languages extend the viewers’ sense of vision by shedding light on the working forces of forgetting and memory.
