'Antarctica is a special place with particular stories and memories, the polar explorers called it “white blonde”. Through my series I aimed to convey a feeling of the hostile and unfamiliar environment of the South Pole, creating images where the geographic reality give way to the space of dream. I froze the archival photos of Antarctic expeditions, as well as my own specially photographed self-portraits, turning them into "icebergs". I wanted to be part art of the landscape to express a sense of awareness of time, to show the fear of oblivion, termination of activity, entropy through a collision with a smooth, hard, cold ice surface.
Using photographs, found pictures and collages I explore the themes of personal and collective history, imagination, memory, the built and natural environments. The character of my work makes me think of the nature of photography, which always ï¬‚uctuates between materiality and visuality.'
