Marlene | Folk tales, fairy tales are introductory texts in reality, learning to distinguish good from evil. They describe the principles of reality and give insight into human nature. It is also a way of learning about values, transfer of knowledge, which is difficult to recognize in a direct way. Fairy tales also reveal our way of thinking about the structure of the story.
Russian literary scholar Vladimir Propp accurately recognized and announced fairytale elements. They form the series and the relationship between the hero, his loved ones, helper or antagonist, as well as the surrounding or just revealing to the world. All of these features singled and named - one of them is the “unrecognized arrival”. This is the moment in which, after a long time of absence hero returns home, is not recognized and it works anonymously.
Borrowing the narrative structure of Propp, I back to my family home and try to replace the images stored in memory using the photographic medium. I treat fairytale as a tool, allowing you to try out the world, to test him - after 23 functions all subsequent Systematic Propp carry a positive solution. It turns out, however, that memories saved images cannot be changed. They shape our thinking harder than useful from the outside of the structure. www.marlenajablonska.com
