“A hand lying on the shoulder or thigh of another body no longer belongs completely to the one it came from: a new thing arises out of it and the object it touches or grasps, a thing that has no name and belongs to no one, and it is this new thing, which has its own definite boundaries, that matters from that point on.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
“These are gestures small scenes at hand” composed of photographic collages built from archival materials collected from the internet and images taken and constructed by the artist. All the works represent hands and their relationship to different objects, traces and materials. Visual metaphors and associative scenes are created in the images of the things touched by the hands.
The image of the hands is a fossil of past actions and memories. Hands are cut, episode, past and forthcoming. I try to comprehend what I touch and turn it into an image.
