Welcome To My Secret Garden

“Welcome to My Secret Garden” is focused on the photographic archives from the Serlachius Museums, in Finland, most of images taken between the years 1890 and 1960. Photographs can be seen as surreal images that represent an incomplete reality; as time passes these images detach of their original meaning. We are not interested in the historical reality that photographs document, but on the unknown they hide. As Susan Sontag said: “A photograph is only a fragment, and with the passage of time its moorings come unstuck”.
By collaging and animating them, we try to match the absurd with the organic. Our intention is to seduce the viewer into the unnatural world that photographs violently frame in a shoot.
