STILL (A) LIFE   home<<

“Still (a) life” is a series of still lifes that is questioning the role of women in our society. Based on "typical female" stereotypes - women as housewives, mothers, or women as decoration etc. - the project shows a female body doing domestic work or together with objects that are related to one of those stereotypes. In most of the pictures only a part of the body appears – not the entire one. Sometimes it becomes unrecognizable at first glance, what generates disturbing pictures. By representing women in this way they get transformed into objects – into soulless and headless things. The viewer has to ask himself what am I looking at, what am I actually seeing.
