REMTY ELENGA

ALL THE SCREENS IN MY HOUSE

Her nearby environment and the observations she makes in it form the starting point for Remty Elenga (Los Angeles, 1987) in creating new work. In doing this she likes to explore how we give meaning to various layers of reality, looking for contradictions in time and place, the visible and invisible, between what is real and what isn`t.

At first glance the digital screens in All the screens in my house show an identical portrait of Elenga. But for the close watcher it shows that they each differ from each other by a subtle movement. Within the frames of each surface the portraits lead their own life. Five pairs of brown eyes are focussed on the observer, who is now engaged in the film.

Remty Elenga (1987) just graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, were she studied fine arts. In her work she researches the visual language of representation, where and what fore we use representation and how this is integrated in our everyday life. Depictions are no longer attached to their physical presence, they are free to travel from place to place, finding themselves in both physical and non-physical conditions. Elenga tends to explore these different stages, searching for contradictions within time and space, the visible and the invisible, between what is real and what is not.

Haar nabije omgeving en de observaties die ze daarin maakt vormen het uitgangspunt voor Remty Elenga (Los Angeles, 1987) bij het creëren van nieuw werk. Hierbij tast ze graag af hoe wij betekenis geven aan verschillende lagen van realiteit, zoekende naar contradicties in tijd en plaats, het zichtbare en het onzichtbare, tussen wat echt is en wat niet.
