Ingrid Deuss Gallery presents the second solo exhibition of the Belgian photographer Peter De Bruyne (born 1966 in Bruges).
The exhibition Instant # Memory shows about twenty images that focus on the process of changing memories. In his photographs De Bruyne tries to show the distant memory, stripped of all the details. Memories are always the result of patterns of electrical and chemical activity in the brain. This activity is always on the move. When we compare recent memories with old memories, we notice that we gradually filter out details and amplify other features. What was first an image full of details, dimensions and a wide color palette, becomes an image with only one dimension and one color.
De Bruyne wants immediately to come to this refined, filtered point. As if he skipped the present and immediately went into the memory. He captures the atmosphere in that one image that he makes at exactly the right time. It ensures that the images are unmistakably De Bruyne: blurry, dreamy, fragile, mystical, cinematic, emotional. However, the colors are more intimate than before with lots of green and gray shades.
Like its previous series, these images have also been made 'on the road', in Spain, the Netherlands, England, Germany, Belgium ... De Bruyne challenges the viewer to "look creatively". He shows 'the other side' to whoever wants to see it. What at first glance seems to be an abstract composition, changes after a while into floue landscapes or characters.
