⇨WHO SPEAKS YOUR TRUTH?
who speaks your truth? is an examination of the photographic medium and its long-standing affiliation with memory. Photographs are dealt with as pictorial testimonies to the existence of recorded facts, used as containers of memory to stave off forgetfulness. But what good are these photographs in staving off forgetfulness once severed from their referent? Whose truth do they speak to once undergoing a change in ownership? A shift in ownership unknowingly gives rise to the autonomy of the image as an object that does not care for the desires of its user. The photographs role as a mimetic object is therefore finite, no longer intended to serve as a reminder of the past, but instead becoming a suggestion, leaving all speculative work to the viewer. The purposeful pairing of photographs in who speaks your truth? merges disparate narratives from which emerges a new dialogue, offering an alternative approach to the reading of images that have been severed from their origins.
