Miguel Rózpide (Spain, 1997) is an artist who mainly works with photography. He likes to involve the viewer through text keeping the subject unknown. By photographing recognisable scenarios open to multiple interpretations, viewers are able to create a resonance between an inner world and an outside world, finding an unexpected state of catharsis.
“A New Collective Memory uses first experiences from different people as a starting point. With a conceptual approach, this ongoing project aims to increase the dynamic between audience and author by visualising emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Society is thought to be socially constructed through human interpretation. People interpret one another’s behaviour, and it is these interpretations that form the social bond. As a result the artist can imagine and interpret this experiences without being hindered by their social and cultural background.»
