Recuperating the past, or more correctly a realistically fictive past, is the artists’ aim in their series Alias. With the help of (real) researcher Laura Lejsu, they tell the story of a young Jewish girl trapped in the Warsaw Ghetto who makes use of the family’s photography studio to forget the horrors happening outside. Yearning for a freedom denied them, she and her friends pose in the nude, in private defiance of the tightening vice. Alas, the old negatives were never properly fixed and must be displayed under red glass.
