In the formats of exhibitions, editions and readings, Dominique Hurth is interested in the framing and reading of objects and events exploring thus traces of personal , cultural and historical memories that are present in localities, text and images. In documents, archives and exhibitions displays, she is folding and unfolding in non-linear manner those narratives, that remanifest themselves translated, abstracted and absorbed into a subjective voice.
