Verónica Losantos presents a canon of events from an ordinary life: birthdays, Christmas, the first day of school, a visit from a relative and through them narrates distinctive life stories. The exhibition Screen Memories is at once an affirmation of one’s life path and a questioning of the unanswered puzzles from one’s youth. In the gaps in the narrative, the artist is able to piece together a different narrative, and comment on the role of memory in shaping her. The exhibition’s title, Screen Memories, is a reference to Freud’s idea of slipping memories: screen memories are triggered by two conflicting forces – one of them attempts to remember the important incident while the other tries to suppress it as a form of protection. Here Losantos deals elegantly with both.
