When I killed your tulips

Still lifes of re-photographed and printed objects

With the series When I killed your tulips, I explore the social biography of objects through the medium of photography, and how the meaning of objects changes throughout history. Snapshots depicting statues and pure materials are repeatedly printed out, re-photographed, and playfully juxtaposed to still lifes.

My cross-disciplinary way of working intertwines photography, sculpture, and collage, with which I aim to explore the limits of photographic space and to question the perception of things taken for granted.

To investigate what we perceive as a photograph, I reflect upon the fragmentation of the contemporary digital sphere with re-arranged objects in conversation with printed matter. In the last years, my projects took the form of installations in which I juxtaposed photographic prints to objects and materials, expanding them from the walls to the floor.
