Our point of departure is the universe of old images, abandoned in fairs, forgotten, left behind. We grab this fragment of the world, in order to displace it in time, resignify it, give it a meaning removed from its origins, making it explode in different directions and senses. We understand these images as fictions that contain realities, and not the reverse, we construct a work space where the truth and the lie touch each other and one is mistaken for the other, where we accept the idea that any life is built on invented narratives and that the future of an image also serves to rewrite its past. To look at the life of these images from this perspective led us to construct invented biographies, reconstruct facts, create fiction going beyond the limits between what is ours what belongs to others. This work proposes an exercise in imagining that our memory and our forgetting, those absolutely indispensable elements for us to become singular, can exist in any body, in any life, in any other.
