I remember, knowing only that it belongs to a memory, this phrase:
“I don’t know, but I have the feeling that I’m going to have known.”
- Maurice Blanchot
These photographs were produced by photographing Super-8 films of my family that were made during the fews years just before and after I was born. With this transaction the photographic event is doubled, the subjects transfigured, and their movements transposed. Seen in succession the contiguity of the images involves the viewer in the generation of a necessarily fictional narrative. It is in this way that I hoped to implicate the processes of remembering past events in the construction of subjectivity. In the end it is the familiarity of the photographs that revels in and reveals the elusiveness of memory. A continuous past is only found in the possibility of a future tense.
