Insert memory here
In her newest work, Insert memory here, image and text take you through chaos of lost memories and emotions. Departing from an autobiographic point, the memory loss of her grandmother, Nele creates, through images of her father’s family archive, an universal story about losing memory and time. The images show pieces of a life and are linked to each other through text. The openness of the pictures and the abstraction of the whole, allows the viewer to use his own imagination. The whole is a video installation, with three monitors. The rhythmic changing of the images guides you through fragments of a life.
Nele Thorrez (Roeselare, 1992), is a Belgian photographer currently living in west flanders.
Before her master studies photography she completed her bachelor in the audiovisual and visual arts, more specifically in photography at Sint-Lukas Brussels.
In her personal and most recent works, she uses the tensions that appear in a family context, whether or not caused by an external factor. She made the work Home in 2014, a video - installation about her home. Home shows the love for a place that - because of the profession of her parents, who breed rabbits - is seen as something weird. With the use of a digital camera obscura, she created a poetic video, that underlines the love for that place.
From May-July 2015 there will be a project shown at the Brakke Grond in Amsterdam that she worked on, in collaboration with Kelly Schacht, Hannah Zandee, Ciaran Nash en Kayt Hughes. The exhibition takes place within the framework of The Apprentice/Master projects from kunstpodium T, Tilburg.
