Photographs hold a special place in modern memorialisation practices, capturing the fragility of a moment and ideally preserving it in as recognisable a way as possible. Some artists, however, deliberately choose more abstract forms of memorialisation instead.
Photographic abstractions like these play with our perception and are analogous to how human memory and understanding work – they, too, are unclear, blurred, and indistinct, making them also ambiguous and open to interpretation.
