The series Undertaking investigates the extent to which social, political and psychological factors shape our society. Furthermore, it explores how governmental control, group mentalities and xenophobia inform society’s behavior, and how these issues effect our coexistence.
Our world is currently going through a political shift. Rhetorical platitudes, once thought outmoded, serve to perpetuate long-established feelings of anger. It appears that fear has become the primary factor determining how groups relate to one another. “Truth” has become a fluid term relating to news, science, and photography alike. This apparent fluidity is fuelled by demagoguery and populism’s polarization of opinion. In this new framework, the lines between fact and fiction are blurred.
My aim is to create images that trigger a response in the viewer, be it recalling a memory from their real life, or from an imagined place or fictional history. By combining cinematographic elements with motifs from the everyday, my images operate in-between fact and fiction, the seen and the experienced, and where logic coexists with irrational thought.
