Dompteuse de Papier
The photographic series shows eight separate moments in which a Din-A-4 paper is shown at the moment of landing.
In the experiment with a conventional blank white page, a short-lived, momentary pose was captured. The blank sheet itself becomes a sculptural work. My interest primarily lies in the momentary, short-lived shape, caught in the act between letting go and landing.
The recurring hand, reminiscent of a puppet show, directs the sheet, which performs a failed pointe dance in 7 pictures and only perfectly presents it in one of them.
The quite fragile material, which can normally fall over or fly away at any moment, becomes a rather cumbersome subject in the photographs.
