Vera Mennens (1991) is an artist, photographer and co-founder of at7 projectspace based in Amsterdam. Her works look at the question how you can research historiography as an artist. While being on the verge of fact and fiction, unravelling the gap between past and present, she questions how the archive helps to construct and preserve our collective and personal memory and what the future of that archive can be. Working through the medium of film she creates constellations of overlapping images taken from public and personal archives, books, slide projections and found objects accompanied and brought together by vocal narratives. The work provides a site of relations across time and place that invites to take a position between the collective and personal, fact and fiction, past and present.
