This is the place is a multimedia installation that explores different ways and methods of recollecting the past, while questioning the intrinsic ambiguity and unreliability of the photographic medium.

The work unfolds in the space through a fragmented installation of visual clues, creating a broken and layered narrative that constantly shifts between preserving and destroying, both physically and metaphorically.

The film follows the journey of a statue, belonging to the artist’s father, being repaired. This is placed in conversation with photographs from her family albums.

Throughout the film, the photographs are soaked in a household chemical, igniting a process of disappearance. The only resolution in the film is on the surface, of both the statue and images; the body of the lion and the surface of the prints become the places in which memory occurs again, or where the act of looking into the past manifests physically.
