THEME #14Winners2020AUG




Absence and Displacement

During the period when I could have no direct relationship with the outside world, I suddenly didn't know whether I actually existed. I was unable to tell if what I saw on the screen was true or if it was related to me, and I thought that perhaps the world was connected to someone other than myself. As I arranged a number of photographs focusing on myself, I was able to confirm without a doubt that the self reflected in the pictures indeed existed. But the only images in which I could recognize myself had been edited. Perhaps these photos connect to someone else.

Jury selection

I am fascinated by how the artist thinks about closed spaces and by how he has devised a means of expression in photographs on the boundary between the inside and the outside. The artist takes a creative point of view in recognizing and reconstructing things. I see the works as a liberal application of photography as a means of expression.
