Catharsis

Introduction

My photo project Catharsis is currently being featured by Fotografiecircuit Vlaanderen as a travelling solo exhibition. Between 24th June 2019 and 5th March 2021 the exhibition will visit 18 cultural centres across Flanders, Belgium.

The photo project Catharsis is conceived as an associative stream of images from the unconscious, which alternates surrealistic dream images and symbolic fragments with seemingly fading memories and sublimated desires. Catharsis deliberately does not follow a linear storyline, but descends on an unpredictable path into the hidden depths of the human psyche, only to emerge as a fragmentary collage that is both purifying and disturbing at the same time.
