Photo on aluminium. 35x50 cm. 8 assemblages with variable measures. 2002.

RESTOS DE RESTOS. The project is an integrated series of photo montages in which I included some photograms extracted from my home video Barrio Sésamo nº 13, Álbum Familiar (1998-2000 ), Restos de familia I, Voluntad de forma (1999-2001 ), Txikillers (2001) and Restos de familia II (1998-2001), as well as the films Eraserhead (1977) by David Lynch and Vampyr (1932 ) by Carl Theodor Dreyer. The various assemblies weave a fictional and ambiguous story through the selection of phrases and images, which responds to the memories of a possible biography. In this sense, the narrative of the  photograms leads us to the production of a subjectivity beyond the “truth effect”, beyond a limited reality. The image serves as rest, as a fragment visually speaking of a personal past, but, in turn, linked to the memory of a generation. One could speak then of images as phrases of memory. This personal, archival material is treated from an emotional point of view in order to reflect sensitively and dump an “accomplice” experience on the document.
