Echoes from the Past

Moments from the past can be anchored in memories or immortalized in photographs. Yet, other things can also occur, as the Finnish artist Ville Kumpulainen (*1988 Rovaniemi) shows us in his impressive series Out of Sight. He uses photographs to create new histories for our present time. He cuts faces and fragments out of family photos, assembling things that do not belong together, gluing, punching holes in, or sewing individual pictures to produce completely new, yet familiar images. Kumpulainen makes use of a store of pictures gathered together from family albums and his own photographs. In this way, divergent spans of time are blended so that, at first glance, memories are deconstructed, only to be rebuilt and experienced completely anew.
