No time, no place, no body
‘No time, no place, no body’ is an attempt to reconstitute the figure in space by stripping away contextual information through a process of colossal enlargement of the negative. Consequently, the primitive human photographic forms remaining are left in an ether giving the images an ‘other world’ quality. This abstraction is so complete that reality is nullified, and all that remains is the question: Is it true? In this world existing relations are modulated and new ones are created. The series is an ontological challenge to the truth of the image. The use of traditional analogue photography is particularly apt for this. Some of us have held a faith in it’s verisimilitude, yet it increasingly becomes historical; it’s patina invokes memory and a representation of times past. The media disappears into history as the 'truth' of memory itself is steadily abstracted into oblivion or mythology.
