The Artefacts series was photographed in Istanbul in 2015 within the context of a group project based on Walter Benjamin's text "on the concept of history". I imagined that future archeologists happen to find only one object left over from humankind and write our history accordingly.

The Dale series pictures the moment short before a breaking point, an illusive calm before the storm. The photographs reflect the disorientation I feel in my live knowing something has to be redrafted, but still being in the process of analyzing and thinking about the right steps. It deals with the feeling of fear limiting action, the difficulty to know which side to belong to and how to break rigid paradigms.
Dale was selected to be shown at the Hamburg Off Triennale in June 2018 / I got accepted again for a scholarship at the Nordic Artists Centre Dale thus I will continue to work on the series in September and Oktober 2018
