INFO

  • I cannot reconcile myself with the idea of time. I cannot control it, slow it down or speed it up – and yet, I try. My interest in duration and consciousness stems from a failure to regain lost and unredeemable time and my process of interacting with images takes on diverse forms in an attempt to trap the uncontainable. The function of my work should not be to attempt to represent my preoccupations but to better produce the feeling that there is something unpresentable. This is reflected in various works, not only with the insatiable desire to capture and contain time, but also by creating impossible scenes, re-appropriating cinema or presenting found objects as readymades divested of their original intention to create ambiguity and self-referential failures to communicate.

LOOKING FOR YOU BUT YOU’RE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND

Silver gelatin prints, dimensions variable

Looking for you but you’re nowhere to be found is a multilayered attempt at reconnection. Stemming from personal loss, this work attempts to travel into the past in an attempt to reconcile with the present. Through revisiting sites or environments that are linked to the past, I practise the futile attempt of looking for lost loved ones where I remember seeing them in a distant past. This is not nostalgia, this is pain masked by the overlaying of affixed matter. It is work that also attempts to establish a reconnection with the medium of photography.
