About

Cavalry #HS01, 2014, 15 x 10 x 1,5 cm [Scene from the series Odd Stories] Original Polaroid - PIÈCE UNIQUE Hand cast in resin by the artist Patented Procédé © Carmen De Vos Hand signed & certificate by the artist This piece was exhibited at the groupshow Instant Cologne as part of the photofest in Cologne. The Belgian photographer Carmen De Vos shoots Polaroids to frame her mental (sexual) escapades. She enormously longs for what she’s afraid to loose: real human contact, the slowness of being and creating, the tangibility of materials. She thinks up situations and collects fantasies. Almost without exception she uses old Polaroid camera’s, long time expired film and self-made filters. Her tools and methods are film bleaching and deliberate film obstruction are not geared towards a perfect representation. They often yield results – such as colorization, deformation, unsharpness. Furthermore she is fascinated by the unreliability of the human memory as an instrument for recording reality. Our recollection is at best a potpourri of isolated but genuine events. Often not even that. Our memory assails us with a medley of impressions we have assembled throughout the years. Our brain orders, rearranges, adapts, interprets, colors, decolorizes, dims and accentuates these memories of our wannabe past independently of our conscious will. In many ways as do her Polaroid pictures.
