Empty Space explores the relationship of the abstract photographic image to notions of interiority and exteriority as these relate to the transition from the unconscious to conscious reality. The photographs negotiate an abstract space of emptiness as a potential space of abstraction between a psychic space of subjective projection and an objective material space of aesthetic contemplation. This exploration draws mainly upon Donald Winnicott’s psychoanalytic ideas of transitional phenomena in an intermediate area of experience between the internal and external reality. Within this area – the potential space, creativity originates as a zone of fictive play and free mentation that facilitates the subject’s journey from ‘what is subjectively conceived of’ to ‘what is objectively perceived’ throughout his/her development towards adaptation in the reality world. Flirting and playing with the real I enter a performative creative process where I intervene in the construction of the images with the gestural act of placing pieces of thread in the space of reference. Out of this play abstraction emerges as a journey about the real, a journey following the route of a circle; beginning in the real world, withdrawing to an inner world of unconscious processes and returning back to reality. The line that draws this space is both abstract and concrete, both abstract and figurative creating multiple directions in a photographic space of emptiness, which eventually appears full of potentialities waiting to be realised. It is a transitional line, which implies that the relationship between inner and outer reality can be performed and can become a space of action and intervention.

I love flirting with reality, which is always a challenge for me. My photographic practice is concerned with the perception of space, particularly of empty space from a psychoanalytical perspective, and the photographic representation of it in an abstract form as presented in the projects "˜Empty Space', "˜Part Objects' and "˜Red Space'. These works, which are based on using quiet and discreet performative gestures of intervening in the space, brought up a passion and interest in the potentialities of the line in relation to my experience with my surrounding space. Inspired by the abstract expressionist qualities in the images from the series "˜Red Space', I am currently exploring this by using the space of Photography as my canvas, which at the same time operates as a self-referential space for Photography itself. A first example of this can be seen in the image Slash, 2010.
