2019 - 2020

Something initially started as an ambition to document places that face the consequences of anthropoid abuse. Soon it grew into an examination of my archive, which had already bore witness to a particular imbalance between man and nature. The despair of human activity transforms the land around us. Our surroundings are becoming more and more constructed, and as the artificial intertwines with the natural, new landscapes begin to take form.

The struggle of looking for an approach for this concern found its way into a scrapbook. It became a place where the doubt of not knowing, and the uncertainty of how to express, became visually graspable. By zooming in on different parts of the landscape, I visually explore the boundaries where nature transcends human intervention and the limits of confinement to which it succumbs. I wonder how our human presence is perceived in a world where the traces of human abuse are unmistakable.

Wallflower is an impression of space, shaped and reshaped, in an attempt to define and express thoughts of appreciation and concern for our natural surroundings.
