This spring Foam 3h will premiere Memento, the latest series by Lara Dhondt. In her work, Dhondt documents forgotten and found objects, materials and locations in the urban landscape. She does this in an effort to give marginal places a human dimension or dignity. Dhondt's interventions seem casual and are often nearly invisible. If one looks very closely, however, the care and precision with which the interventions are constructed become clear. The exhibition in Foam will feature black-and-white images from the Memento series, printed on rusted steel, cardboard and wood - materials that change over the course of time by reacting to their physical circumstances. Three-dimensional work from the Primary Stages series (2012), a map and Antropomorphe (2012), the 8-mm projection that she made in collaboration with Portuguese artist André Catalão, will also be shown.
