Angela Schwank, 2005

 

In the large-format photo-weavings Brigitte Konyen´s work focusses on the process of reminiscing and the construction of memories.
Here the „memory picture" seems to have fallen apart without any foundation in familiar patterns (patterns which themselves turn out to be self constructed exemplified by the artist's radical subjective interpretation) and appears forever evolving, a hypothetical structure with variable interrelations.
Brigitte Konyen uses numerous photographs (mostly personal snapshots) that are then cut into fragments and woven together.
Structure and order are all reconstructed in a way to allow the viewer multiple visual connections, correlations and references.
