written in the past
"We cannot arbitrarily invent projects for ourselves: they have to be written in the past as requirements" (Simone de Beauvoir)
The objects depicted in this series have a physical or emotional relation to events in my recent - or more distant – past. Each object constitutes memory, each image tells a story linked to my mother’s recent death and/or my childhood.
To me, the images are explicit, they describe events in much the same way as a diary would. For the viewer, only the essence of my thoughts is accessible. It is on this level that they talk about more fundamental aspects of the human existence such as balance, loss, and memory per se.
In these works nothing is still, everything is moving, floating and filled with hidden meaning – as is life.
