Through the creative process of installation, the artist composes fragments
and aspects of her relationship to memory.
Every memory that the author materializes and embodies through a work of
art loses its weight and thus creates a space for relieving the past.
The Aspects project is a two-part installation that offers an
insight into the author's creation and growing up from two different
perspectives. In her audio-visual work, the author interweaves both gallery and
individual experience, which takes the viewer from an objective point of view
to an intimate one. The objective view is made of all the symbolic objects that
defined the author's growing up. Through active creation, she introduces these
symbolic objects into the poetic experience of her growing up, thus placing
them in an abstract context, relieved of her memories, which leaves the viewer
with his own interpretation. The Aspects project is an installation that
uses remembrance to explore different attitudes towards the past, the symbolic
value of objects, and their creative potential. The Aspects are
subjective memories that implement themselves into the collective memory and
remain in us as a memory.
My name is Mary Anne Blanche, I am 19 years old,
and I go to a high school for design and photography. Art has been close to me
my whole life. It is the easiest way to express myself and my thoughts,
especially those that I don’t know how to express with words or I don’t want to.
In principle, I don’t like to explain the meaning of my works, because I think
that a work of art has its own meaning for each individual and I prefer to see
people finding a part of themselves in my works, even if in a completely
different way than me.
