My work is about my investment in witchcraft in the context of the ‘pagan boom’. Collaging the content of a specific book, an interplay between image and space is a central theme. In betrayal of the tenets of the text, I seek personal catharsis. Issues of censorship, secrecy, humanity, and vanity of the book’s exposure of the craft are pertinent to my practice.
The project works closely with the archive of imagery – utilizing a single book as its core of the archive; the rest of the images have been selected from archives discovered through research surrounding the original book. My physical intervention with the images is used to show my relationship towards them, which I want to communicate to the viewer.
