Statement: Ursula Handleigh

Using alternative, experimental and historical processes of photography and filmmaking, Ursula Handleigh’s work explores notions of identity, perception, and memory. By juxtaposing contemporary technologies with historical methods of image making, Handleigh’s work tries to flatten the time and space between forgotten memories while rewriting her own personal history. Exploring the deterioration of memories and familial relationships, her work addresses notions of the real versus the imagined, while drawing connections between what one remembers and the blanks that are left behind.
