    • Carmen Arrabal


    “Souvenirs volés” (Stolen memories) is built from anonymous images appropriated by the artist to create an artificial, borrowed memory.

    Most of the photographs were recovered in Berlin. There are hundreds of photographs from family albums, carefully selected by the artist. The process isn’t archival. It is rather a display of moments from life, private and mundane moments that take us back to other time, reflecting on own questions about memory and death.

    Carmen Arrabal manipulates photographs by replacing the original faces with those of modern-day figures, all while keeping the original scene intact.
