Part of the Konnektor-project
The search for Langerbrugge’s identity encompasses the main thread of her residency. Initially entitled ‘Mechanical reconstruction of the memory. An image against oblivion,’ her research scrutinizes the history and memories of objects and images – Marcel Proust’s A la recherche du temps perdu instantly springs to mind. Ruiz Loyola concentrates on collecting those mental associations, stories, objects, and photographs – things that tie together the local residents of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge with the history and life of the electricity plant. With ‘Collectieve Conversatie (‘Collective Conversations’) her research got translated into a solid audiovisual installation. Awaiting an appropriate time of presentation, a video-trailer is in the making.
