About Group photo

Multimedia installation, 4 slide projectors, 320 collaged slides, texts printed on textile, 2017

An installation with the orchestrated four carousel-type slide projectors displays hundreds and hundreds of photo collages made of the group photos collected from the former workers of the closed textile mill. Recalling the deafening rhythm of the looms that never ceased to fill the everyday of the textile workers, this audio-visual installation creates the feeling of an elegiac symphony dedicated to the textile manufacturer that bankrupted. However, textiles that fall from the walls of the room and that carry interview quotes from dozens of different workers seem like a compact story told by one worker about the blossoming and the fall of the mill. These orally transmitted memories have a literary quality, which I have only amplified with the artistic means at my possession.
