The Bleak Series is the body of work of an exhibition to be held in Brussels later this year.
I am attracted to dark, empty, cold places where beauty seems to have inhabited the space either a second ago or an eternity away. Sometimes the void of emptiness is piercing through one little detail, sometimes a detail of hope is piercing through that void. However there is a tension in each shot, a duality, a crack in the light and a light through the crack.
The Bleak Series explore both everyday sights and nightmarish landscapes. There should be a feeling of abandonment and absence, longing and loneliness and a sort of cold irony.
”There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen
