Images are at the heart of our lives. There are images we barely glance at but that stay with us, and images that watch us. There are images we create and collect, without knowing how to sort and where to store them. There are images that our memory hoards, more or less consciously. And then, there's the image we have of ourselves, the one we try to project to others... In NO51 My wife made a scene and deleted all our holiday pictures, Ene-Liis Semper and Tiit Ojasoo, two Estonian artists, tell the story of a man alone with himself, after his wife and children have left. Following an argument, his wife destroyed all the pictures they'd taken while vacationing on a paradisiac island. With the help of a few people he brought together, the husband begins a strange and desperate attempt to recreate his own memories and reconstitute the pictures that have been erased. Locations and characters change, but he goes to great length to recreate the pictures' framing, composition, and meaning. The audience watches this odd attempt to contract time and space in a hotel room turned giant photo studio. A way to stop the world from turning, to assert one's existence, and to show the importance of what we've been through.
