In this series of sculptures I worked with a UV-sensitive dye on fabric normally used for soft furnishing and dress-making. The fabrics were treated with emulsion in a darkroom and hereafter exposed either on site or in the garden of the house where I grew up, resulting in 9 different photographs. In this way, the different patterns and colours are a recording of the specific light conditions of that specific moment (photo-graph, light-drawing). Each individual sculpture is titled after the date and place of the exposure.
Photography has a performative aspect to it that I work with and around in my abstract, photographic works. Roland Barthes writes in his book Camera Lucida – Reflections on Photography: ‘the movement exists by virtue of the photograph and the photograph exists by virtue of the movement: they cannot be separated from each other.‘
