Art Description

Photography: C-type on Aluminium.

Edition of 5 +AP

This project sprang from my wish to see and record, in detail, what a falling person looks like. It was crucial to that these falls took place in reality, from real heights. The narrative of falling - as experienced by mythological figures such Adam and Eve in the Fall, Ikarus, Lucifer - alludes to notions of temporality and mortality, but also emancipation; the fateful passing from one state to another. I used conventional large-format photography, one shot per fall. Each photographs is thus a record of my pressing the shutter at a particular moment during each fall. The element of randomness - within the otherwise tightly controlled studio setup - represents a theme, in that falling eludes control. This work carries autobiographical references.
