A photo serves as proof of a journey taken. Even though we buy the memory of another in instant, prefabricated form. In the work in progress Postcards, Lucas Bambozzi presents us with a collection of short videos which all begin with the image of a landscape, a monument, a tourist site which we suddenly realize is a postcard, and behind it, the image that served as a model for the photograph. Using the work Cartes postales vidéo (Video Postcards) as a starting point, Bambozzi deals with the idea of urgency, the ephemeral, the banal.
A postcard is a crossing place. Countless journeys coincide in the same place to later continue on different routes. On adding the postcard to the video, this crossing is highlighted, and one memory is added to another.
