In June 2012, Joëlle Verstraeten traveled to Lisbon, to visit Clara Ploux who was mourning the loss of her son, Eduardo. During her stay, Joëlle found a loose packet of letters, telegrams and photographs from the '50s in a flea market. They were moved by the testimony within the letters as the story of two young lovers emerged- Eduardo and Odete. Joelle and Clara began a creative journey as coincidences as dates, places, and names aroused their curiosity, emotion, and imagination.

"I often mix mediums I'm not supposed to." Joelle Verstraeten is a collector of found objects.  Her work is inspired by things discarded.  She works through collage and this collaboration with Clara Ploux is a collage not only of materials but also of performance.  Thursday-Saturday night at the gallery, there will be an art performance along with video production and original music.  

Our lives are a mosaic of moments and encounters that all come together to create vibrant images, memories and stories.

This experimental project questions how reality and fiction serve as mirrors that transcend time and space.

"How would you like to be remembered?" is a multidisciplinary art project and international collaboration presenting the exhibition of 2 sets of 25 monoprints completed with collage, drawing, sewing and written work on paper (22" x 15"), video projection, original music and and art performance / short play.
