Since 2012 Ives Maes is working on the project ‘Sunville’. This series is about his homestead, the village of Zonhoven, about time and solidified memories. In these works the artist uses the basic principles of photography as well as the newest digital 3D technology to achieve a hybrid form of photography and installation art. The work ‘Ice’ is a photographic recording of a projected Super 8 film from his family archive. The time lapse between the sequence of the film and the photographic recording makes an abstraction of this memory and changes it into a unique graphic print. 


SUNVILLE is the English translation of the name of Ives Maes’ native village Zonhoven in Belgium. The photographic series is a personal quest into his memories around specific locations in his hometown. On another level this series is a part of his PhD in the arts research at KASK School of Arts / UGent concerning the physical, sculptural and architectural aspects of photography.
