GRANDMOTHER
EXERCISE 3
 

Grandmother Exercise 3 is a medium-format portrait of my deceased grandmother, printed on an old tablecloth. (80 x 90 cms). 

Viña del Mar, Chile. 2021.

A landscape, corresponding to my grandmother's hometown, merges with her portrait and my own silhouette that supports it.

This performance presents us with a sequence of photographic incarnations; the landscape in the portrait, the portrait on a tablecloth, and my silhouette embodied in the final photograph of my grandmother. A sequence of material and visual superpositions, which adds new symbolic and sensory layers to suggest the fragile and diffuse presence of memories over time.
