Mariana Murta

Geboren in 1991 te Setäbal - Portugal
Actief in Arnhem

In my work I like to approach themes of displacement and dissociation with ones past. Objects from my childhood and adolescence such as toys and photographs are a recurring source of inspiration for my work. Souvenirs, photographs of a different time and place...

The sentimental value of things seems to assert itself whenever we are faced with a moment of passage in our journey as an individual. These objects, that I like to refer to as "keys to a past time", loom between the ambiguous feelings of longing for the past and the yearning for a new beginning. Ever so often an uncanny sensation arises when we experience these objects, a certain unfamiliar feeling within the familiar, in which what were once objects of adoration become distant and haunting. I try to find the abnormal and strange within these blurred everyday memories of my childhood.

It is this uncanny, haunting feeling that I try to translate into the language of painting.
