Vestige - Series

Artist: Riitta Päiväläinen

From her artist statement:
"Who or what is historically remarkable enough to be recorded or remembered. I do not want to emphasise the historical significance or the importance of remembering everybody and everything. As much as I need to remember, I need to be able to forget. The idea of having only "one historical truth" would not make alternative truths possible. In this sense, forgetting can be regarded as a positive potential.
Instead of thinking what or who we have lost, I want, through my photography, to concentrate on what is still to be found. Read more."
