Aitor Frias Cecilia Jimenez Artist Bio:
"We do not even want to photograph things but to create stories, that´s all. We just paint with light some imaginated landscapes". Aitor Frias & Cecilia Jimenez (both born in 1985) are a Spanish duo of visual artists and photographers based in Granada, Spain. Their work constantly explores the collective imaginary, the memory that dwells in the subconscious of all of us. What interests them is not just something beautiful that is happening right now, in front of their camera, but to what extent it has always happened -and will always happen-.Their photographs shows fragments, moments, images that resemble the jigsaw pieces of a puzzle, of which some parts are left for the viewer to imagine and fill in the blanks. Aitor Frías & Cecilia Jimenez are more interested in what is not told, is not seen, than in what is explicitly shown. "Landscapes of the Memory" starts from the analysis of the mechanism by which memories work. A mechanism that fascinates them because of its ability to distort reality, to make it abstract and focus it into a perfect and absolutely beautiful minimalism. From this research process, they use that tool might be called "the created memory" to raise, from their position as artists, a series of unknowns and existential doubts about the human being.
