My work explores a familiar scenario: the ‘logic of everyday thinking’ that assumes it is impossible to preserve or fix images in the memory forever. Yet I also attempt to create memory by working from the unattainable, impermanence, and deterioration, with the photographic act and its chemical nature as a reference and, above all, a metaphor.

Oscar Muñoz

The power and ephemerality of memory are the focus of Oscar Muñoz’s work. He expresses the fact that memory (memoria)—and time, which is tied up with it—is relative, can never be grasped entirely, remains constantly in flux, and ultimately escapes us no matter what efforts we might make. Muñoz’s raw material consists of photographs that he estranges and transforms by subjecting them to a variety of technical processes.

Aliento (Breath) clarifies in exemplary fashion the interplay of becoming and vanishing that is inherent in memory: first we see our likeness in the mirror; then, by exhaling, we give shape for a moment to images of other people on this same mirror. But these fade immediately so that our own mirror image emerges again.

The metaphor of becoming and vanishing, the eternal circulation of life and death, also defines Biografías (Biographies): it is impossible to capture the images statically, because human faces—each of which stands for a completed life—deform and swirl into an Orcus that immediately resurrects them, only change possesses continuity.
