AMONG OTHER THINGS


Window exhibition at Gallery Format, showing a selection of photographs from a larger series of still lifes. 

“There might be something liberating in not ascribing the things anything else than what can be seen in them, both for the things themselves and for the spectator. ‘To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees’, but maybe also the absence of a name can make us see.“ Full text here.

7 translucent vinyl prints mounted onto windows, various dimensions, backlit during night time.
