A Spiral of Memory I
Diptych, lambda-prints, 160 x 240 cm
A Spiral of Memory 2001-2002
Collection Delta Lloyd, NL

/.../ Inert water, in contrast to flowing water, smells: it sews the seeds of death and decay. It nearly has a morbid characteristic and also refers to a disturbance in a natural equilibrium and to changeability. Ziach devotes three works to this idea. They are all photo works with a suggestive depth: the mysterious attraction of static, dark water is manifested in it. In The Spiral of Memory, one witnesses whirlpools. Their inward spiral movement announces change. It signifies flux, unrest, chaos and disturbance. Rolled up photos with images of human body parts tumble around in the whirlpool; they are hauled away in the movement of water./.../

/.../“Archê” - which is the Greek word for “origin”- is the title of her new show. This universal concept refers to the leitmotiv of “water” or “the wet element” which is implied. Water can be understood as a metaphore for transience and the passing of time. In Archê water is also the symbolic transformation from the material to the spiritual /.../

Aqua Obscura I
lambda-print, 130 x 125 cm
Aqua Obscura 2000-2001

/.../ Ziach photographed the water surface which was covered with an infinite, dotted pattern of algae cultures. These cultures, when blown up into a larger size, obtain a kinky almost abstract structure. Aqua Obscura shows a puddle in which a series of photo negatives are floating around with portraits of one and the same person. They are half concealed between the algae, as human residues. The method of portraying photos within photos has the affect of memories in multiplied form. /.../
