ConceptEuropePersonal items; Memory and Loss by Dimitris Sideridis

As an artist, I created images of some of my parents' personal items. These items escape their everyday identity and function as evidence of my parents' preserved memory. 

The loss of my parents stood as the reason for this project. As french psychologist Pierre Janet said, Memory aims to overcome absence (Janet P., 1928, 221).

By observing the works of other artists’ and reading the texts of theorists like Halbwachs and Barthes, I investigated the ways in which “memory” and “loss” could define my work, which stems from the personal need to keep the memory of my parents alive. Halbwachs defines the meaning of collective memory within a social context and the collectivity of social groups, that shape individual memory. Barthes discusses how photography correlates to memory and remembrance. The latter theories accompany the research of my work.

As an artist, I created images of some of my parents’ personal items. These items escape their everyday identity and function as evidence of my parents’ preserved memory. 

My aim is to create a sense in which one can conceive the “presence” of absence that the personal items convey. Thus, a transition is realized between what was and what no longer is, between the actual loss and the spectators association with a familiar experience. The photographes that occurs is a result of research and reflection on a personal but also collective issue, which remains in its character sociopolitical, intercultural and timeless.
