After the death of my father, I found a box in his desk, neatly tucked away behind a stock of office supplies. It contained 36 polaroids he had taken as an engineer at various construction sites. These pictures were so enigmatic, I knew right away I had to do something with them. They soon became the starting point for an artistic journey that originated in architecture and transformed into playful sculpture.
I used real and simple objects that I found in my father’s house to create small installations. I wanted to create a dialogue between us and bring together our two lives and both our ways of seeing.
But Is it possible to sustain a a conversation with a deceased person? How do you keep contact with someone who’s already dead?
The image ‘Endless Possibilities of the Difficult / Thunderstruck “ features two rubber gloves found in my father’s garage. They’re worn as protective garment to prevent oneself from being electrocuted. They are connected through a copper tube, which is actually an excellent conductor.
