Some visual stuff for the blog. Last autumn I got interested in collecting as a method or a tool for an artistic practice. Quickly I noticed that I had a special interest in collecting some particular things or using photography as a way to collect something I found attractive, although I wasn’t really sure why. And I wasn’t even sure if I would ever use the collected items later for material. I had been thinking that the items or photos I collect would eventually end up being some kind of impulse material for a performance. In stead of a performance it suddenly seemed more interesting to use the actual items and photos and make something out of them. Then the idea of recollecting came along, since I had been collecting these things for almost a year and already had formed memories towards them.
I will continue with this consept, Collecting – Recollecting, also with my performative work.
