Ansa II

2017 / Photography diptych / 123 x 75 cm / 49 x 30 inch / Edition of 8 + 1 ap.

The inspiration for Ansa II comes from childhood memories and fantasies when my brother and me used to dig holes in the woods and cover them with branches and leaves to protect our space from imaginary enemies.

The body of work explores the relationship between human and environment; our tendency to constantly reshape nature to respond to our own aspirations and demands.

The work consists of excavated holes that were photographed in the dark with an triangular, square and circular shape. In the photographs the shapes appear stable but looking closely the soil with roots, branches and leaves is fragile and almost collapsing.
