||Written in the Past
photography and text by
"We cannot arbitrarily invent projects for
ourselves: they have to be written in the past as requirements."
The objects depicted in this series of photographs all 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 childhood
and/or my mother’s recent death.
To me the images are clear; they describe events in much the same way
as a diary would. To the viewer only the essence of these memories is
accessible: the pictures talk about fundamental aspects of the human existence
such as balance, loss, and memory per se.
In these still lifes nothing is still, everything is moving, floating
and filled with meaning – as is life.
