In The wedding the artist referred to some of her memories. During the process of recollection, she could see only a few details: the chandelier in the room, the chairs, the big windows of the dining room facing the garden. “The visual detail stands in for what can’t be visualised.” As when trying to recall childhood memories or in people who have experienced a trauma, “she describes again and again a trivial aspect of the scene but the picture as a whole remains inaccessible”. Objects such as chandelier, frames, lamps and windows, furniture and arrangement are both familiar and alienating. They are fluid and peculiar environments, where there is a breakdown of contact between objects and thoughts, the familiar and the stranger.
