    Portrait of a woman (Marketá Kulhankova) and of pictures of her, taken around the year 1953 by her photographer husband. De Visser had made an installation in 1994, using pictures she had painted based on her photographic portraits. During a world tour of this work the woman was recognised by her grand daughter at the exhibition at the National Gallery Prague. In this film, De Visser visits the lady in Prague, now in advancing years, for the first time. The discrepancies between past and present are intriguing.

    animaton sequence: 5”56 minutes
    25 Paintings are based on a found black and white photograph of an unknown woman. These paintings are animated to recapture the moment that once must have happened; an interaction between photographer and model. The Skipping Mind shows an imagined memory and the gaps of recognition that come together with a remembrance. The installation encloses the painted stills and the animation of these portraits.
