Rosângela Rennó - Vulgo (Alias) (1998)

"These photographs originated from glass negatives in the Sao Paulo Penitentiary Archive, Brazil, which were identification photographs of prisoners, taken between 1920 and 1940.

Archives particularly interest Rennó because they are stored testimonies and traces of a past that is kept locked and forgotten most of the time, as are prisoners. 

Rennó’s photographs are recovered fragments from a decaying prison archive which highlights the gaps in memory and the history of those prisoners.”

Artist’s statement:

I combined disparate elements such as mold grown in my studio, stars downloaded from robot cameras in space, snowflakes captured on a winter’s night, to magnolia trees blooming in spring. At the heart of these images are unique camera-less Light Projections which I devised for this project. This series is about my ideas of Infinity.”

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.

I’ve essentially moved on from this type of work, but it’s fun to hammer one out every once in a while.
