IGNIS PICTURA
The dialectic of fire in the photographic memory.
Through the controlled intervention of fire on photographic prints, forgotten by their authors in a photographic course storage room, a process of rescue, transformation and reevaluation is triggered. These photographs are converted into symbols of oblivion and the transience of moments in life. However, by subjecting them to fire, a fascinating paradox is produced: fire, as a destructive agent, also reveals a creative facet by leaving its mark on the photographic surface. This dialectic between the creation and destruction  by ephemeral beauty created by the flames on the prints invites us to meditate on the inherent duality of our own fragile and temporary   memories  and  our  deep and although ephemeral feelings.
