In her current practice Ilona Pachler is working with images of places as well as layers of distance, memory and time inherent in the image.

She addresses the memory of places and the immeasurability of this memory.
Her interest is the relationship and ratio of time, distance and memory that has lapsed after the image was created, as well as the before and between.

In fabricating sculptures that attempt to measure these memories of time and distance, she creates devices, that - in combination with the image - are forming new places and a new visual syntax.
