Dad attempts to define what remembrance is and how photos can influence and shape the perception of memory. At first a memory is crisp and sharp, but what happens to it when it fades away? For this piece, the artist photographed her father during his last days of life in order to translate the meaning of memory and its manual transformation into a narrative installation work. Lisa Klaverstijn experimented with her photographs by transforming them into three-dimensional shapes and adding different material textures, thereby reconstructing her memories with a twist. By blowing up and changing the perspective of the images, they become a new memory in their new right.
