Lotte Agger feature hos Blacklisted Copenhagen

"Memories are a funny thing. They are artifacts of our past, but they are rarely accurate of what actually occurred. Photographs help to solidify the account of one particular moment, but even those are unreliable, as our minds begin to fabricate alternative narratives around those moments to fill in holes in the memory—colors and objects change, night becomes day, details become magnified or excluded.

That is what drew me to the work of Danish artist and photographer Lotte Agger. Her work has a surrealism to it, but not in the traditional definition. There is an explicit fragmentation of the images, that gives the impression that a specific moment was assembled from various sources - various cameras, various memories. It’s as if she has cracked a code for photographically capturing the disjointed versions of the past that we simultaneously fabricate and document."
