Product Description

Our concepts and rationalizations might have lent themselves to abandon the state of despair at times, they too fulfill the sense of hollowness. Whereas the subject of our search is the real, our understandings are muted, transformed and reconstructed. Much like Jack Gilbert denounces it in the opening of his stunning The Forgotten Dialect of the Heart: “How astonishing it is that language can almost mean, and frightening that it does not quite”. For this series I xeroxed black rectangles on top of Thomas Struth’s photographs (from the book Dandelion Room) using painters tape to protect the colorful flowers from being obliterated.

The book is made in collaboration with Oliver Ibsen. Edition of 50 copies.
