Fragments of a scattered memory and what remains

In her extensive series "bruch stück", Lena Baloch works on images of inner worlds that are commonly difficult to make visible and are often also faded out. She self-confidently deals with social regulations that leave no room for deviations from the norm. "bruch stück" is a complex photographic group of works that makes the widespread phenomenon of a depressive perception of the world tangible with the means of reflected photography.
Along her own past, the photographer reflects on her experiences of depression. Her imagery deals with the burden of memory difficulties, with a suicide attempt and with perceptual shifts of depressive states. Depression detaches memories from their temporal location and leaves gaps. The design of the images is adapted to this mode of remembering - flash-like, blurred, discontinuous - in any case fleeting.
Memories of places, events and feelings combine with images of the imagination. What remains is a kaleidoscopic structure consisting of fragments of one's own identity.
Lena Baloch, *1994, lives and works in Graz.
