Belgian photographer Lara Mennes’ series Capturing the Sensible considers the memories and residual detritus lingering in buildings long after its inhabitants have disappeared. Taken in 2011, the photographs of three abandoned buildings reveal suggestions and traces of human presence, showing everything from footprints on dusty floors to faded posters – things left behind intentionally or not. Mennes is a witness to architectural history, and the photographs invite interpretation and discussion of time, memory and human nature. In store thanks to MER. Paper Kunsthalle (Ghent).
