Traces of Memory

Isabel Miquel Arqués & Miguel Soler-Roig

The thread that links Nostalgic Memory of my Life before Birth and IMA, on Impossible Memories, is the emotional burden of the past while defining the present. Furtive nostalgia is shared through blood ties, even if there is distance, however these are underground traces unfolding the passage of time, manifesting their undisputable presence. What comes to us are only remnants, or elusive fragments that are transformed when they encounter the memory of others, as documentary vestiges or imagination itself.

Both series emerge in a subtle line that blend with what was, what has been and what could have been. The creative dialogue oscillates between the artistic interpretation of characters and historical events, capturing a recurring image, as a vision of changing memory - in the series Nostalgic memory of my life before birth - and to capture a recurring image, as a vision of the changing memory, in the case of IMA, on Imposible Memories.

On the other hand, the works seem to permeate delicately into each other, as the faded environments of Miquel Arques shape the ideal scenarios in which the characters of Soler-Roig can inhabit... Hands without owners, anonymous hair, hiding silhouettes, unknown bodies are like empty containers waiting to be occupied by the cultural identities of ancestral collective imagery.
