Nía Diedla

Santiago de Chile, 1979

The day I started to put together images on the table, I did not know that I would find in that gesture the possibility of a language. Today that language has become a place of habit. The photograpgy that I perform finds its roots in an intimate place. The fable or the tearing of the mundane day-to-day life transforms in stories, it is there where my Diaries are born and also those assemblies that I like to call Geographies.

With them, I keep on filling the chapters of that question that keeps on resonating in my head and I do not manage to answer, at least not completely as I can merely read it. And it is in that question that words like memory, roots, footprint, house, oblivion, tree, keep on appearing and disappearing repeatedly throughout my work.
