The Living Studio
In progress (2020 – ongoing)
A room, maybe windows, flooring, ceiling, walls, white, in my case. Concrete floor. I constantly rebuild the storage of materials and artworks. stacking collections of pieces of wood and rocks in the corner. Building installations on the back wall.
Within the different studio spaces I have been working in for the past three years, I am exploring what it means to work inside a studio, being trained as a photographer. In the studio my archive of found images, materials and finished artworks meet. Together they form an ever changing and growing collection. They connect as in a visual language in which recognizable elements return and are exchangeable like words in a text. I explore ways to create spatial photography and sculptural forms in which the indoors and outdoors are intertwined.
At the same time, by constantly constructing and deconstructing, I investigate subjects such as isolation, temporality and the relationship between the studio and the outside world. What happens when the work moves from the studio to the exhibition space?
This project was exhibited at:
BredaPhoto 2022 as outcome of the BredaPhoto alumni talent program.
The images were placed in a deconstructed wooden model of my current studio space.
Mucho Mas, Turin
Under the name “Exploring the living studio” The exhibition was made in a process of a digital residency in which we had multiple sessions where the studio was digitally connected to the exhibition space. Documentation of this working process in the form of text and video was part of the final installation.
