LOSS, 2017

Self-portraits.

These photographs can be seen as performance stills although there was never a video documenting it.

This performative photography is a

very personal way to deal with grief

after the loss of the mother:

as the wool gets cut off pain

and fear dissolve cut after cut. 

At the same time, life slowly fades

away but the primal connection with

the maternal womb remains in the

form of a single thread. 

Medium format B&W film, scanned.
