analog Photoseries
This series consists of manipulated shots of my own body. The parts of the - in the images - dismembered whole are luminous against the dark background, as if fluorescing from a vanished world. Small figures with pony tails or wild windblown hair, figures which sometimes look as though they escaped from cave paintings or an animated film, run and dance over white skin; the pores and wrinkles of which are clearly visible. Figures and signs from an unknown, still magic, intentionally archaic writing, particularly on a female body, remind one of a matriarchal aesthetic in a culture oriented towards patriarchy.
