In my ongoing project, Movement, I strive to give visible shape to the relationship between my own concrete physical movement in the production phase and the established environment or familiar sites chosen as content.
By layering multiple exposures I wish to generate engaging interpretations of iconic structures and landscape sceneries. Fragmented, draped and distorted the images invite the onlooker to come closer and discover the details, which do not reveal themselves from a distance.
The works consist of many different very sharp photographs of the same motifs, which are carefully combined to offer an illusion of being on the go – in movement. The hazy, translucent shapes created by the layering make for a photographic style that resembles impressionistic painting while still retaining all the detail of modern photography.
LIMIT TO YOUR LOVE
The Limit To Your Love series was initiated in 2011 by the wish to break away from controlled, predefined photography – and to create something simple.
The visual expression resulting from transferring polaroids onto watercolour paper and a division into fields of 1, 6, 8 or 12 is what gives the series its distinct character.
I wish for the Limit To Your Love works to come across as emotive statements with natural imperfections. The random distortions seen as white areas on the surfaces not only arise in the work with polaroid-negatives, but also in the prints’ transfer to watercolour paper. The paper’s special surface makes it difficult to control the final expression, and as a result one field is never identical to its neighbour.
The tactile, disrupted surface of the works creates a distance to the motif, shifting focus from the specific woman depicted to the woman as multifaceted idea.
