5 gelatin-silver prints, magnets,65x90 each, 2020
Three times the same print, from the same negative. Each print showing different traces of my tongue on the photopaper as result of a blind action in the dark room. The saliva that sticks on the paper becomes visible as a photogram.
They make a series together with two ‘spoelbadcollages’. These are photos of test stripes in the washing tray, floating under and above each other in the water, forming a spontaneous collage of the images I’m working on.
