Mnemonic by Lajos Geenen

In his "Mnemonic” series, Lajos Geenen explores how seemingly mundane actions experienced by mature adults can trigger deeply rooted childhood memories. He examines this complex relationship between present and past by depicting the layered relationship between lovers in domestic settings. The rethinking of traditional gender roles and the act of caregiving are all in play in these images and create a new context in which to consider these actions. The constructs in Mnemonic act as prompts themselves–– whether the viewer chooses to interpret the image directly, or as a cue to their own history. Geenen's own memories of youth are inexorably tied to his early impressions of the old Dutch masters and their historic depiction of domestic scenes in the 17th century. Conceptually and stylistically, this series brings together both these histories.
