Visual artist Magda von Hanau’s ‘Reminiscence’ series is a deep exploration and interpretation of fragmented moments from memories. Anchored by the themes of time and space, the artist delves into a more conceptual framework, acutely exploring and experimenting with the motifs of identity, memory, and loss. The subject matter incorporating children, architecture and nature are perceptively assembled and juxtaposed to capture, freeze and render visible stories that transcend, time, space and memory. The series’ palpable nostalgia for the past is paradoxically expressive of the present as well as the future. Through form and symbolism, this body of work regards unconscious repetition, imitation, and survival. Viewers are invited to reach across chronological and physical boundaries to reflect on the universal themes and personal experiences inspire by ‘Reminiscence’.
