Rosemarie Zens SIGNED COPY: The Sea Remembers

Decades after World War II, Rosemarie Zens returns for the first time to the town in today's Poland where she was born. In 1945, when she was just a young child, her mother had been forced to flee with her in a wave of refugees. She embarks on a search for clues about her early life, a quest to find out what origins and the memory traces that remain might tell her about her first formative experiences. With her camera, she captures the things that catch her attention: the expanses of meadows, the paths into the unknown, the silhouettes of nighttime shadows. Mysterious and ethereal landscapes mingle with photos from family albums, intertwining fragmentary memories with pictorial inventions. "It is said that there is a cell-memory, that cell water is laden with powers heavy with meaning, that there are traces of memory stored in it, measured and mapped, which reach far into the past and are seeking the way back to physical experience. But our place of origin eludes us when we try to pin it down. Then it changes like the sea, which invents nothing but takes on different forms. Just as our consciousness and memory strive to constantly reassure us, to re-orient us and to temporarily establish for us an order of things and images." (Rosemarie Zens)
