Filter Object Series

“Filter Object Series” act as filters to question our stereotypical perceptions of the female representation. Drawing a thin line between the familiar and the unfamiliar, the imagined and the real, fantasy and representation was part of a self conscious; process without becoming explicit, leaving the space to the viewers to create their stories. Tactility, visual puns, light and color are combined to trigger fantasy and ambiguity.
They are images conceived as ephemeral constructions of identities based on the coexistence of an object with the female body. Although the subject in the photographs is my body, these series are not to be considered as self portraits. I use the body merely as an aesthetic material. The photographic fragmented treatment of the female form, without definitive context, as well as the reconfiguration and displacement of found and assembled objects are part of a personal visual vocabulary suggesting innuendoes about beauty, sexuality, femininity, meanings of pleasure. The images in Filter Object Series are ‘portaits’ of mutable and performed identities; in flux, layered, not clearly evident, constantly changing. An assemblage of objects and selves that are perpetually fragmented.
