Andrea Alkalay has journeyed through the human landscapes and customs. While sorting out her material, she never yields to the unusual or extraordinary. She rescues from oblivion a climate, a situation in suspense. She goes in search of the formally subtle traces of life and nature, to express the groundswell of their incessant thunder. Remembrance turns back in time and sails across geography. This set of travel images has the texture of memory. The evocation has re-written primitive contact with the world, charging it with the thickness of reflections and the perfume to questions whose answers are unknown.
