The two-part assemblage work was created from a collection of photographs taken during a family vacation when I was 15 years old. These photos show the consumption of beauty products by my mother and myself, documented by my father, who criticized our consumption. The intention behind these images is not directly visible.
„Evidence“ embodies a reflection on personal, social and cultural aspects of patriarchal structures as well as female identity. The work reminds us to reflect on the subtle backgrounds of images, memories and the influence of norms on the individual self.
