Frozen memories / 3:45 minutes
Artist name: Rogier Dirkx

Small images are always little memories, snapshots of someones life, dreams, ideals,frozen moments on a instant photo. This time, in this short film they’re lost in ice, than defrosted to give a little peek, so they can return back in the ice ,keeping their little mystery again….

Artist Statement
In combination with video’s I want to try to make my own world, first I did the same with iron sculptures in combination with my music but I’ ve discovered that working with video in combination with my music is more direct and is appealing more to fantasy and toughts ! What I try to to tell you are the feelings about abandonment, desolation and and the dark site of our existence so you accept the beauty of very small and normal things of nature and our normal environment. The desire to magic! I hope you enjoy. Band member and filmmaker: Rogier Dirkx
