Memory Portrait

lithography on cotton, 8 pcs (18x22 cm), 1 pc (30x40 cm)

Memory is constantly changing and cannot be recreated like a movie. Such attempts are like building a house of cards in the sand. While trying to capture the image of her mother, the artist searched for a technical process that would best reflect the phenomenon of memory’s unreliability.


In the whole process of preparing prints - from transferring photos to stone, to copying and the laborious process of tearing and combing the threads - there is a story about forgetting.
