THE HUNGARIAN SEQUENCE 1988

The series named ‘The Hungarian Sequence’ (1988) appears in the first instance no more than just a collection of snapshots, picked at random from the family album perhaps. But they are in fact the photographic recordings of a cinema performance in a fringe theatre in Budapest. They are secondary images, photographs of photographs. We recognise the scenes but the story they belong to is no longer clear. They have become wandering fragments, vague apparitions which evoke deeply hidden reminiscences in the viewer: these spectres on the wall might as well be our own memories. Steve Humblet
