Love Demands 2013
I photograph «special children». More precisely: I photograph special children. A desire to reach an agreement with every man puts the quotes. I convert documentary photographs showing the process of their gradual transformation into collages through transitional stages. The process of the object creation takes time similarly with experience that may be modified to a full incognizance. The collage, it looks like a child appliqué – resembles an infantile understanding of beauty. An unperceived demand to obscure the ugliness. Like a block against a hit, it is a gesture of occlusion from something the one cannot understand, accept and work through. By the annoying parts retouching, by the self-sustained idea of «beautiful», the myth the ones perception is able to assimilate is being created. An average perception is not able to love something that is situated beyond its ethical and aesthetic system.
