Personal project: I was inspired by people’s need to collect different things. The work is based on my family’s hobby of collecting sticks. I found a trunk, a stump and a branch and placed them into rooms, so that on the photographs they give the impression of something absurd and scary that doesn’t belong there. We can also see it as an abstract of some taboo problem, which the people who live in the flat can’t get rid of and all they can do is accept its weird and annoying presence. Read Less

WOOD

A series of photographs named Wood is a photographic recording of a real installation.I placed parts of tree trunks into the interior of my home. I was inspired by a human need to collect different objects, surround themselves by those and create various collections. The work is based on my family’s interest in collecting wood. I placed a discovered trunk, stump and branch to the interior, so that they give the impression of something absurd, inappropriate and horrifying. It can be also understood as an embodiment of a taboo problem which the occupants of the flat can’t get rid of while there is no other way than accepting its weird and uncomfortable presence.
