ABOUT THE WORK

‘Implants. Those aren’t your memories, they’re somebody else’s,’ says Deckard to Rachael in a scene from the movie Blade Runner, when she tries to convince him that she is human and not a replicant by mentioning that she has memories. But the memories of replicants are artificial and implanted to better keep these human clones and their possible ambitions and desires under control.

The works commissioned by ARNO question the truth of memories and the coherence of human recollection. Resulting from a process of continuously re-photographing the photographs while adding a series of different and disturbing analogue filters, these are images of images, blurring and dissolving into a visual noise. Only some urban elements are clearly visible – somehow fragile, and not necessarily truthful fragments of reality.

The images depict their own fundamental instability – their fugacity and uncertainty bear a resemblance to a
mémoire involontaire: a single and unexpected moment of a sudden coincidence of different space and time layers. La mémoire involontaire evokes images of the past not seen and registered until the future – which is the present moment.

BIOGRAPHY

Diana Artus is a Berlin-based visual artist with a strong focus on the perception of urban space, its imagery and the interdependency between city and mood. The base of her creative process is photography, which results in surreal reinterpretations of urban phenomena and architectural bodies. This often takes the form of sculptural image objects or images of images. By transforming digital photographs into original image objects with an analogue and unique character, she constantly stretches and transcends the limits of the photographic medium.

Diana received a Magister Artium degree in German Literature & Language from the University of Leipzig in 2000, and a Diploma degree in Photography from the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig in 2007, where she also completed a
Meisterschülerstipendium (Master Student Scholarship) in 2010.

She has also been awarded several grants, including a studio grant at ISCP New York, 2008. Significant selected shows include several solo shows at Galerie Metro Berlin, 2010-2012; Art Cologne’s
New Contemporaries, 2011; Galerie Alexander Levy, Berlin, 2013; Fabra i Coats Center of Contemporary Art, Barcelona, 2014; Tokyo Institute of Photography, 2014; and Art International Istanbul, 2014.
