trouble – 2020
Isabella Hin
problematic: Water theme
description: Trouble contains only elusive and misleading aquatic images. Immersed in a dark, water-like environment, the viewer is faced with whose subjects have been drowned, liquified and transformed. Initially photographs of our natural environment become modified by a liquid that varies from calm to turbulent with a recurrent presence of drops and air bubbles. These full and empty, light and heavy, circular shapes produce trompe-l’oeil effects suggesting flight and depth, oxygen and drowning. “An unusual sensation of submersion which is felt once one is underwater: protective, troubling, timeless.”
