What happens when we abstract from the presumed movement, light and
shadow and commence to distinguish prototypes and structures ? Within
the visual synthesis, the contrast of the materiality of water and
vegetation deliquesces into fluid lines and cadenced patterns. The river
of life ? water as the energy source of growth ? becomes emblematic.
Within the indecipherable density of the reflectivity, a color space is
perceivable that poses to us the question: Do I want to know the
location, or does the photographic piece proffer me space for perception
and association? The
capturing moments in which the performer touches the
water?s surface or in which her body dips or dives into the
watery element. The water?s reflections are echoed on a
formal level in the material on which the photographs are
printed: reflective foil. The photos intentionally make it
impossible to tell whether the performer is emerging or sinking.
The true focus is on visually capturing the moment in which the
body breaks through the water?s glittering mirror, here
used as a metaphor for the boundary between different
worlds: above and below, day and night.
