Psychastenia 10

Archival C-print mounted on aluminium, series of 22 images. 125 cm (h) x 189 cm (w). Edition of 3+AP. 2000
In Psychasthenia 10, we are confronted with night time photographs of apartment buildings in different western cities. The low light levels and colours intermix the background and the foreground in the images, and the 35mm photography gives a blurred distinction between architectural or structural elements. The buildings —all from between 1959 and 1992 do not have clear indicators of their economic or class relations but we are left to interpret them in this context from our own projections of experience, fantasy or prejudice of the city.
