To Chase A Butterfly

Boris Snauwaert

2020 - Ongoing

To Chase A Butterfly is on ongoing project about family, loss and memory. I am interested in the way we construct memories as a world to dwell in when we feel lost, and how these created worlds start living their own life in our minds and the stories we tell ourselves: singing themselves increasingly loose from the original facts and events but somehow coming closer to who we are and how we perceive the world around us.

“Memory (…) is a shifting, fading, partial thing, a net that doesn't catch all the fish by any means and sometimes catches butterflies that don't exist.” Rebecca Solnit, The Faraway Nearby (2013)
