Teichmann's practise takes us into an alternate orphic world, moving from beds to swamps and caves, in search of a primordial return. Here, the literary and the visual merge, the photographic loosened from its referent, slipping in and out of darkness, cloaked in dripping inks, bathed in subtle hues, evoking a liquid space of night.
Narratives of loss and desire are entangled like the glistening tentacles wrapped around the bodies depicted. Like the coral said to be formed by Medusa’s blood spilt upon seaweed, Teichmann’s work transforms one thing into another, sliding between autobiography, fiction and myth, still and moving image, sculpture and painting.
