Ελένη Ονάσογλου – Hippocampus

Ελένη Ονάσογλου – Hippocampus

Ο ιππόκαμπος είναι μέρος στο κέντρο του εγκεφάλου, το οποίο ελέγχει την μνήμη. Η εμμονική πεποίθηση, βασισμένη στον φόβο ότι θα χαθεί η μνήμη, με οδήγησαν, ασυνείδητα στην αρχή, συνειδητά αργότερα, να φωτογραφίζω με τελικό σκοπό την δημιουργία ένας οπτικού ημερολογίου. Συλλέγοντας εικόνες, κατασκευάζω ουσιαστικά έναν κωδικοποιημένο χάρτη της μνήμης. Ένας χάρτης, που τελικά αποκωδικοποιώντας τον ξεφεύγει από τον πρωταρχικό του ρόλο και οδηγεί σε μια εσωτερική διαδρομή εξερεύνησης του χρόνου και των συναισθημάτων που δημιουργεί το πέρασμά του. Μια διαχείριση του φόβου, της απώλειας, την επανάληψης, της ενοχής.

The hippocampus is part of the brain centre, which controls the memory. The emotional belief based on the fear that memory will be lost, led me, unconsciously at first, consciously later, to photograph with the ultimate purpose the creation of a visual diary. By collecting images, I essentially build a coded memory map. A map, which eventually decodes it, escapes its prime role and leads to an inner journey of exploring the time and the emotions that it creates in its course. A management of fear, loss, repetition, guilt.
