Shaver machine charger


As part of the «Shaver machine charger» series, I work with my own archive of photographs, which I reassemble and partially turn into fiction, constructing a narrative from separate memories taken out of context. Thus, a «random harmony» of spaces, places and images is created, in a sense reminiscent of an unconscious dream. It all becomes similar to how our memory works, and how memories are distorted over time. For me, this method of assembly and col-lage makes it possible to intervene in past events and wanderings. I would de-scribe it as «magic realism» when «interferences» and «breakdowns» in the perception of reality are barely perceptible. In my practice I refer to the tradition of realistic painting, herewith striving to crystallize the intersection of the illusory and the possible. I am interested in investigating how they both look at the universal.
