Artist Statement
I was thinking about the relationship between photography and performance and arrived to the idea that the definition of performative photography is more interesting to reveal through the absence of action and body of an artist or a model on the photography. In this case, we come very close to the line where the photography almost ceases to be performative. But reveals the ability of photography to capture the mental constructs of subjective states. And the smallest details pointing to the
phenomenological cast of subjective states and bodily experiences, extend the hang of the photography at the invisible feature of performativity.
