Zero (2021-)


The cycle of works in Zero find their origin in a visual investigation of 3479 peel-apart polaroid negatives, all irreversibly damaged.

Through this surface damage in the shape of scratches, fingerprints, tears and dust – all of which de facto erased the originally captured images – the viewer only sees what now stands in between.

In this way, a different dialogue is proposed, an alternate entry point into something that has become unknowable.
