Marie L. Borgia’s project touches the most engaged part of therapeutic art: to show a dignified portrait of those living with amnesia. She selects images that seem to be burning with an inner light, overexposed by the omissions in them. She produces light-grey prints that appear to have been created practically inadvertently. To properly document her subjects’ everyday lives, which always take place in the moment, she remains always within their comfort zone. The compositions fragment an expression or disposition, the sketch of a face. With these carefully constructed images she is able to give form to their feelings, to their emotions and, ultimately, to the singularity of their being.
