Southeast Museum of Photography
Lorena Guillén Vaschetti, historia, memoria y silencios
Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Friday, January 25, 2013, 6:00-8:00 pm
“In this very personal project Lorena Guillén Vaschetti examines what the family photograph reveals about our past, and about what is hidden, beyond the frame. In 2009, Vaschetti’s mother threw away all the family slides to protect her daughter from the family history. Vaschetti was able to recover only one box from the many that her mother had discarded.
Vaschetti’s photographs of these recovered slides resemble evocative film stills from an obscure, dreamlike screenplay. They pose many more intriguing questions than they answer as we peer into a distant world of family relationships formed into a broken narrative. They all have a mysterious quality that reflects the passage of time and about how powerful but constructed memories of our past shape what we ultimately believe to be true.”
The exhibition will be on view January 25 – April 14, 2013.
