Grandmother Exercise 3

Curator's Eye

Referencing aesthetics relating to memory and familiarity in relation to her own life, Constanza Valderrama deconstructs notions of social elitism within the art world through the use of everyday objects and low-cost materials in her practice. Taking photography as a literal and material concept, works develop through the physical conversation between multiple photographs and tangible materials, deliberately positioned to create a narrative that is unique to the work’s spontaneity and tactility.

Adding to cart… The item has been added

Grandmother Exercise 3 is a large-format portrait of my deceased grandmother, printed on an old tablecloth. In this photographic incarnation, the chosen material adds symbolic and sensorial layers associated with the memory of the portrayed and her environment.

At the same time, the composition of the fabric interrupts and fades the representation of the portrait, producing visual elements representing Alzheimer's and the vulnerability of memories over time.

Medium: Digital print on old tablecloth

Style: Experimental Photography
