The work 'Fold Unfold Fold Again (A choreography amongst images)' can be compared with the process of a choreography. As in a choreography, in which a certain path in a limited space is created for a dancer to perform, the images in 'Fold Unfold Fold Again' have a specific stage and certain path to function and perform within. The project originated from a strong interest and investigation in the possible appearances of photo- and videographic images from the moment they are captured on film or sensor, which distils a limited space (or stage) from an original actual context or place. That original context is not important, it’s the limited space generated by that mediated image that functions as the starting point of the different works in 'Fold'. In 'Fold' Lore Horré uses this limited space of a captured image to generate endless new spaces and images, moving back and forth from physical appearances to touching the surface of flat abstractions and back again (but never over the path she came from). In this way the images in 'Fold' all take part in a kaleidoscopic dance on a stage that is provided and constantly altered by them selves.
