All performance artists have a special relationship with themselves and their body. As a medium, the body becomes a tool for examining oneself and one’s subject matter. In photo performances where there is no live audience, the artist is free to experiment and alter the approach.

The exhibition consists of photographs in which the artist engages in a dialogue with the camera. Some of the works have a narrative or serial structure, others are freestanding images devoid of any storyline. Alternatively, a story may be concealed in the moment of exposure, or it can first come into being in the viewer’s imagination.
The pictures contain joy and fun, austerity and generosity, predetermination and randomness. For the artist in front the lens, the camera is an ally: it records without passing judgment. The artist’s presence and charisma are enough – a simple gesture in its context can reveal deeper meanings and levels.
The exhibition includes both classics from earlier years as well as never before exhibited new work.
