Product of an absence by Lorena Salome
False memories, true reconstructions, or what happened to Aunt Matilde. The originality of this video resides in the way in which Salome manages to rearrange her memory vis-a-vis the character of the piece. Her use of “fictional documentary,” video files and fictional narratives, trigger a story of loss and in the realm or representation. Only through the manipulation of the image and its after-effects, can the heart and the uncertainties of the memory, remember. The presence of these layered images and sounds – as a product of absence in the work of Salome – become the only way to deal with the inevitable: death.
