Forest Chants (2013-2014)

»Every single thing in this country is an homage to everything in the world, even the things that haven’t happened yet.«
(from Roberto Bolaño’s »2666«)

“Forest Chants” discusses the possibilities of images situated within nature photography – studio based still lives, found and appropriated images, landscape photography – to become different images via re-contextualization and digital as well analogue alterations, moving away from their original indexical referent and initially pictured object or situation.

The series examines how different kinds of images as well as varying stages of pre- and post production interact; it analyzes the relation of complex and subtile Photoshop interventions to blunt digital alterations, questioning the concept of authenticity regarding photography as well as the idea of narration within a series of photographic images.

“Forest Chants” creates an abstract place that ultimately shall allow allegedly specific visual manifestations to transform into varying kinds of other images.
