Urizen Freaza was born in 1982 in Tenerifea and he’s Currently based in Berlin.
The series ëMemoriaí was born as an attempt to photographically materialize memory. Working on his own family pictures, the series is a reexposure, re-framing and re-lightening of those old pictures, a reinterpretation meant to turn them into actual memories. The use of colour and distortion is a try to imitate the ways of our own memory, which every time we remember, forgets and memorizes again, storing not data, but feelings and associations made at that moment.
The multiple Polaroid allows the association, and the instantaneity of the format suggests the continuity of the memory process that leads to deterioration, to oblivion. Using chemical techniques was meant to underline the subjectivity and randomness of the whole process. The Polaroids are turned into tangible objects made out of intangible memory, something irreproducible, a fetish. A marker of a moment and place that symbolizes our wish to retain our experiences.
