12 photo collages, 32×45 cm, 2022, E.V. 3

The collages are based on photos of debris, seemingly inert material found in the tidal area, such as parts of dead sea animals, plants or man-made objects. The series plays with proportions and repetitions. They suggest new life forms, reflecting on survival, how we are part of nature, and that eventually also the circulating non-degradable materials will become part of us.

The series forms part of a larger body of work called Wretched Ground that was initiated on a residency at Waaw in Saint Louis, Senegal. The collages were exhibited at Chez Dasso in Saint Louis within the frame of the OFF programme of the Dakar Biennale in May 2022.
